I was born in the North of England and as a young child the family moved to Wales. I went to school where, is you achieved the expected level in the subject being taught - one could choose to study any other activity from horse riding to swimming etc. I chose ART.
Having been trained as a teacher (Head of Department of Art) and co-owner of a country house hotel, I am now enjoying the time to paint again. I studied at Goldsmith's College of Art in London. My inspiration stems from a very varied life of travel and the beauty I have encountered and experienced. Colour, design and shape play an important part in my work, also from the everyday images ones sees.
