When I was a kid, we used to say, “I’ll double you,” which meant two people on one bike – usually on the back carrier but sometimes precariously balanced on the handlebars… and sometimes even on skateboards, down very steep hills.

I’m finding the way back home to my old loves of illustration, printmaking, drawing and design, after ages spent working in the crazy haphazard world of dance and theatre. I also design under the name of Scruff, which comes from my longstanding reputation as someone who can’t keep her artwork clean and tidy (luckily, computers came along and saved me from a life of smudgy blobs and fingerprints).
