Both Karen & I were taught by her at Chelsea and the RCA where she injected new energy into the printmaking departments. Meeting her had initially been very nerve-wracking for me - I'd written about her 'Oval Court' as an undergraduate and was totally in awe of her work. She was, however, an extremely approachable frank and charismatic tutor - able to help on both practical and intellectual levels.
Over time I have remained impressed and moved by her work, you have to admire any artist who has the
conviction to piss in snow - make something from this, carry the piece through to an exhibition and survive all the
press flack AND come out on top! I still love the Oval Court imagery - as a student wandering into a show by a
woman I'd never heard of at the time it blew me away. I remain moved and inspired by her work and saddened by
her death - I am sure she too felt she had much much more to offer privately as well as to her public audience.
