After getting my Sociology BA, I worked as Ken Plummer’s research officer on his “Sexual Variation” project 1976-79. I took the full six years to finish my Ph.D – “Social Definitions of Lesbians in Britain 1914-1939”. After completion in 1986 I went on to teach Lesbian History at Birkbeck for two years. In 1989 I began a two year ceramics course at the City Lit, whilst working part-time at a designer at City and Islington College. I gave up the day job in 2004 and have been self-employed as a ceramicist since then. I have a studio in Bethnal Green and exhibit in galleries in the UK and internationally.
Interests: ceramics, print-making, drawing, collage, film, sea swimming, wilderness.
