My career started with bang with the publication of the ‘Survival Scrapbooks: Shelter, Food and Energy’ in 1972/4. After that I was active as a performance and installation artist working with public commisions and organising artists collectives. I went back to making books between 1987 – 1997 (three titles again). I then made video works from 1997 – 2023 and returned to visual book making from 2012 – 2023.

Joining an art and well-being group in Crystal Palace Park in 2023 I rediscovered the joy of drawing and painting! In the context of my wider interests in culture and democracy I started a series of watercolour paintings of community noticeboards.
