I am a white, 70 year old, feisty female artist, from the 60s. My work is funny, political, and mixed media, though I started out as a photographer. I trained at a technical school in London, England where I lived for 10 years as a polirtical refugee from the Nixon Aministration. I returned to the states in 1979, earned my Masters Degree, and spent most of my working life either teaching photography, or working as a civil servant, promoting public art. More recently, I have been working with the L.A. Yarn Bombers and have establoished a local Yarn Storming group. I have won numerous grants and awards for my photography and mixed media works, and my early street photography is in the collection of the Tate, and MOMA. My work has been published by KuDa Eitions, Cafe Royal Press, and numerous magazines.
