This lady has been making art for longer than she can remember. It’s just one of those things she does. Like eating and breathing or something like that.

With a long standing love of the printed image her creative endeavors more often than not involve photography and installation, recently she has been exploring some of her earlier artistic callings including print making, illustration and mixed media collage.

She has, alongside her artistic oddities, a penchant for dress-ups, that more often than not become dress off. She also has a lot of love for various creepy things and yes she wears quite a lot of black, although not as much as she used to.
