British painter and actress, born in Croydon. She studied at Wimbledon School of Art and the *Royal College of Art, London, where she took the stained-glass course, although by that time this was frequently taken by those whose primary interest was painting. In 1962 she appeared alongside Peter *Blake and Derek *Boshier in Ken Russell's film Pop Goes the Easel, which alerted for the first time a wider public in Britain to the *Pop art phenomenon.
