I began a life long interest in art and design at the age of 11 and it is an interest which has stayed with me for a lifetime.
I trained at Sheffield college of art in painting and print making and have since diversified into various media including sculpture, ceramics and textiles. My foundation training emphasised the importance of drawing and even now I come back repeatedly to drawing as my starting point. For subject matter I like natural forms and observations from the world around me. I am currently exploring values in the medium of textiles although my paintings shown here are chiefly acrylic.
