A Photo Journalist specialising in portrait photography, British manufacturing and historic motorsport. Currently I am writing a radio drama about an historic lady racing driver from the 1920’s whilst continuing my documentary work about contemporary and historic lady racing drivers. Have recently completed the restoration of my 1964 Land Rover Series2a, of which I utilise once again as my daily. With over 18 years in the industry of classic motoring I am the go-to girl for BBC Oxford, BBC Gloucestershire and Woman’s Hour. Car and motorbike license. National B motor race license.
