I am a mature female artist, who uses photography, yarn, and anything that solves the visual challenges I face. During Covid -19 isolation, I have had time to look back at a long carreer in the visual arts, and continue to create new works, while valueing my 50 year output.

Title: "Occupy" , Women are largely driving protest movements, from pink hat parades, to Black Lives Matter.
An experiment using nail polish on a photo to incorporate other media with photography, in a series of nudes.
Title: "Self Image" This was taken while I was on a self imposed assignment o participate in a women's photography show in London, WOMEN ( by women).

The Night Beauties are a series of photographs of the flora at the night time. Plants, trees and floral landscapes are the most challenging and my favourite night time subjects. Capturing the low light on the plants and flowers sometimes from the street light, a window or the moon, creates...
