Featured artist

Gained BA Degree in Mixed Media 3-D Design at Brighton Art College in 1980,and since then she has been working as a freelance sculptor and model-maker. Started etching about nine years ago. "For me the Alphabet format is perfect for exploring a fascination with the bizarre, curious and theatrical, dark fairytales and mythology. The images are from a second series- 'Anatomical Alphabet' and are etchings with aquatint."
