A graduate of the Royal College of Art in 1965 she was a visiting lecturer there for twenty-two years, until 1994.

In 2011 a major retrospective of her work was exhibited at Goldsmiths’ Hall in the City of London followed by a solo touring show at Contemporary Applied Arts London, the Scottish Gallery during the Edinburgh Festival, and subsequently at Ruthin Craft Centre in Wales into 2012.
