Trainee Insurance Broker, publishing secretary, lecturer in English Literature and, after marriage, jewellery maker, Art History Lecturer, Official London Guide: Throughout these phases I have always sketched and painted buildings, townscapes and landscapes for pleasure.
Eventually I turned professional, drawing for newspapers, journals, government bodies and countryside books. I also began exhibiting with national societies: the RWS, RI, Pastel Society, Society for Graphic Fine Art, Society of Architectural Illustrators, SWA, and RBA, becoming a member of the last four and winning three awards at their national exhibitions.
