San Rafael, CA
Much of my childhood was spent making dresses and homes for my dolls. I also loved going for nature walks in the forest with my dad looking for mushrooms and longing to see a deer but never actually seeing one because they'd been hunted to extinction. Dancing and fairies were important to me, as were animals and Mary Poppins. All these things still preoccupy me today... making, longing, nature, and magic.
I was born in London but grew up in Essex near Epping Forest. I returned to London for Art School and studied painting, mixed media, and film. Next I went off to New York to earn my MFA. Eventually I moved to California and settled in Marin, where I have had a studio at Art Works Downtown since 1996.
