    Is a printmaker who works in Linocuts and Screenprints, she uses the urban environment as her inspiration.

is a fellow of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers and she has exhibited internationally. She produces linocut prints of Landmark buildings adored by Londoners. Her series titled ’36 views of Canary Wharf’ is widely acclaimed and a full set of the series is owned by the Museum of London as part of their permanent collection. At Orso Major we have a selection of her prints inspired by the Japanese style of printmaking. The images include Canary Wharf, The Gherkin and City Churches.

Her series of London churches includes 24 Wren Churches and two fine Hawksmoor Churches. The newest additions added May 2014 include St. Michael Cornhill, St. James’s Piccadilly and St. Clement Danes.

She says about her series of Wren Churches “The reason I started doing the churches was because I was having an exhibition in a lawyers office in Temple and I thought it would be good to do a couple of prints of this area and St. Brides stood out. So I did that to start and got hooked. Then looked to other Wren churches and it grew. There are several Wren churches remaining that I have yet to do. And might do other churches in the city because I like the environment down narrow streets and passages.”
