Irma Upex-Huggins

Irma Upex-Huggins was a retired Mental Health Social Worker and Group Analytic Psychotherapist, living in Croydon with her husband and dog, Kiki.

She described herself as a 'words sculptor' and an 'inquisitive observer of people, looking in from outside'. Irma enjoyed travelling, especially the intimacy of small places - island communities and small towns; always visiting markets on her travels and learning about people, their lives, languages and customs.

Her new poetry collection, Red Winds - a VSO in Tanzania was published by Palewell Press in April 2018. Author of two other poetry books: Aloes and Brown Sugar, 1991 and Charcoal Woman, 1993, Irma was a member of Poets Anonymous and also played guitar.
