Canadian–British painter, born in Vancouver. She settled in London in the late 1970s, studying at *St Martin's School of Art and *Goldsmiths College. She achieved fame in the 1980s for paintings in which everyday objects were arranged in a grid pattern against an off-white background. These paintings were marked by a remarkable balance between a painterly surface and a vivid, almost illusionistic representation of the textural qualities of objects.
