The patterns underlying life and reality have always fascinated me as a mathematician and artist. Why are they there? What are they for? What do they mean? Why and how can we use them?
Essentially my passion is symbolism, but from a multifaceted perspective. I take into account the science behind numbers, shapes, light and colours, for example, and their roles and purposes in forming reality as well as their use as symbols and tools in the Arts, spirituality and development of human consciousness. In this way I describe how you can understand science through art and symbolism, such as how the circle describes the attributes of time, and also appreciate the magic of alchemy in art.
Naturally I use symbolism extensively in my art and I also thoroughly enjoy doing talks/lectures for a wide audience. My books and articles are based on wide ranging research into subjects covering the Sciences, Arts, philosphy and belief systems. They are always highly illustrated with insightful quotes and examples across disciplines and cultures. I hope they inspire readers to look at reality with fresh eyes and to delve further for themselves.
Numerate and creative, I have a Joint Honours Degree in Mathematics and Management Sciences and an MSc in Marketing, both from the University of Manchester, England. Born in Africa, I currently live in England with my Canadian husband
THE GATEWAY SERIES
Blending the essence of the Sciences, Arts and beliefs The Gateway Series of books explores the dynamics of reality, consciousnes and Mind using the Gateway to the Heavens model as the central theme. The series currently comprises:
Gateway to the Heavens: How geometric shapes, patterns and symbols form our reality
The Hidden Geometry of Life: The science and spirituality of nature
The first edition of Gateway to the Heavens was released in the UK in Jan 2008 and the USA in March 2010. Originally in black and white this very popular book has now been released in colour, May 2014, by Watkins Publishing Ltd.
SIGNED copies of both books can be ordered from this website and are also available as e-books.
A glorious work that fires the imagination and helps us appreciate the truth of our reality.

For your pleasure, galleries displaying a selection of my Digital Art, Canvases and Paintings can be viewed on this site. I also describe how to activate my art.
Recent additions to my galleries are highlighted in the slideshow below.
Current and future exhibitions are listed in my Diary of Events. A permanent display of a selection my art is available for viewing at St Katherine's retreat, Parmoor near Frieth, Buckinghamshire. The selection is changed regularly.
Digital art is occupying me quite a bit these days as part of an ongoing project. During the spring I enjoyed a flurry of productivity and have loaded several new canvases in a variety of styles. Some examples are shown on this page.
