I studied graphics for three years and then worked in advertising, later studied ceramics at Richmond followed by an Open University course in glaze composition.
I went on to teach in further and higher education; at the same time as running a ceramics business. In the 90's I concentrated on sculpture, developing skills and exploring materials new to me, and producing works for public commissions in clay, bronze, carved stone and resin.
Painting has been constant throughout the years, exhibiting in solo and joint shows. Works on canvas began with figurative oils, but gradually became abstracts, now, using acrylic; both forms of painting seem to be merging.
In 2000 I enjoyed returning to study, with a postgraduate course at Norwich School of Art and Design, this gave me the time and opportunity to explore and also to work with film. I enjoy using whatever materials facilitate the outcome of the project in hand.
