Festival: 2020

After 8 years as an alternative theatre actress in Pip Simmons Theatre Group and the Tyneside Theatre Company I studied Photography at Derby and Trent.

I have had a 44 year career in photographing interiors, gardens, people and animals for all those magazines on the shelves. I’m fortunate that my work is widely published – it adds to the satisfaction of being a photographer.

Currently I am greatly enjoying street entertainment with ‘Spotty’ my pet dog, and also reading virtual bedtime stories to children.

I meet a lot of very interesting people, and have the chance to see the broad range of places where they live. Each feature includes a portrait. I like people.

I count myself as very lucky to have such a varied and tricky, but rarely boring, career.
