I was born and raised in Kent. I had a brilliant art teacher at secondary school who taught me to draw and nurtured my interest in art history, because of her support I gained a place at The Slade School of Fine Art for the four year Diploma course.
Then I trained as an art teacher and worked in schools in Essex and Cornwall.
I began to concentrate on my own work about ten years ago, working in watercolour and drawing. Now I produce large scale black and white drawings of trees and woods that combine my love of tone and line with an interest in human activity in the landscape and the feelings created in people by woods and trees.
I am very pleased to be a member of the South West Academy and try to exhibit with them when I can.
My drawings take a long time to complete but they have their own momentum, I have a website where my latest work can be viewed and prints and cards bought
