Dance captured me from an early age. My life would be nothing without dance, I have been its slave and it has been my god. Studying classical dance as a young girl I soon became aware of other disciplines in the dance world. The Alvin Alley dance company, Bob Fossy and Contemporary dance. So I involved myself in as many differences in the dance world as possible. I think I managed to hang just outside of everybody’s box. This was me searching for my own dance and stubborn enough to fight on.

In my 20´s I fell in love and hung up my ballet shoes. I was blessed with three beautiful children and their freshness and creativity enlivened my world inside and out and I discovered the deeper layers of living. In my 30´s living in France I became involved with a contemporary dance company and discovered Pina Bausch. The Pina Bausch company fulfilled everything my imagination searched for and my life was hugely gratified by this discovery, and still is.

In my 40’s, out of the blue I built a three metre crocodile in the living room. I then studied sculpture {B.A.-Hons} and a post graduate in photography at Central Saint Martin’s in London. My focus was first on sculpture and life drawing, which then, in my search to work with delicate and ephemeral materials revealed and unveiled the magical techniques of photography and super 8 film. Light, dark, and stillness became my new set of tools, a new way to express a love to be involved with the undercurrent of life that these qualities involve.

Now my work has no boundaries.
