British by birth, I was born in Africa and grew up overseas. In 1989, I moved to America for a couple of years...

The Beasties have become my identity, they help keep me anchored and are influenced by the traditional art forms of Africa, Pakistan and India.

Most recently I have become fascinated with making images by paper cutting and cutting images from gessoed fabric.

My "Beasties" evolve organically, I am interested in the way pattern transforms an ordinary shape into something extraordinary.

As a member of the Book Arts Roundtable, I create hand bound artist books, my latest book involves a giant cut image, which was then used as a stencil. The shadow image from my cutouts is an integral part of each work. I think of these images as a form of lace. My books are never planned out in advance, I enjoy the way the story tells itself, and I am more creative for it.

BeastlyBeastie t-shirts are also available.

Influences: Edward Gorey, Henrich Drecher and Victoria Chess to name a few.

Areas of Specialization: Cut Paper, Pen and Ink drawings, Artist Books, Calligraphy
