New Look For The Erotic Review

Our magazine is being brought up to date: we’re running on the latest version of WordPress on a super efficient server. There are still essential changes to be made and there will be a few glitches while we adjust and fine-tune. Re-inserting some lost authors’ names is just one. On the plus side, something that wasn’t available before: a back catalogue of  features going back to 2011 has been made more easily accessible. Thanks for your patience!

Lockdown Love Letters

by
An expanding collection of collaged letters, started in the Coronavirus lockdown of 2020. These are mostly large collages made from original envelopes, vintage books, illustrations and some of my own print making.

I am a collage and assemblage artist with a strong interest in storytelling.
I have worked as an artist for 30 years, as well as teaching art and running a gallery in the Yorkshire Dales where I am based.
I exhibit and sell nationally and internationally, and my work appears in public collections in New Zealand, France and America. In 2019 I was selected for the publication: Collage By Women: 50 Essential Collage Artists.
My latest series of collages, Lockdown Love Letters, are a reflection on the erotic and sensual in a time of a global pandemic. read more
