About the Artist
My main interests are in printmaking, painting , artists books and creative writing. Over the last few years my work has been shaped by visits abroad and collaborations with writers.
In 1999 I formed Cacafuego Press with writer Tom Pow and spent time researching and producing Artists books .
In 2002, and 2012/3 I was visiting lecturer at Rochester Institute of Technology in New York State with an emphasis on Artists books
In 2005 I began my own imprint Roncadora Press to allow me to make more one-off and personalised artists books ,and poetry pamphlets.
I have led numerous workshops in printmaking and bookarts in national institutions in the UK Ireland and USA
Having spent 35 years as teacher and tutor in all forms of education, I continue to teach workshops and masterclasses and enjoy working with young people and community groups.
In the last ten years my work had become more focussed on publishing poetry pamphlets and making artists books. The lockdown has allowed me to return to painting using favourite objects from home and garden.
