Biography:

Studied fine art degree in Newport South Wales (BA hons).
PGCE Art and Design at Reading University.
MA in Art Education at Oxford Brooks.

Exhibited with the Society of Graphic Fine Art, Pastel Society, Colour Pencil Society Oxford Art Society, Bath Society of Art as well as showing in the Royal West Academy and the Royal Academy exhibitions.

After art college I learnt the skill of sign writing and worked in London writing signs for televised sports TV events. I then moved to Oxford and set up my own business designing and producing a range of signage for a variety of clients. When vinyl computer-cut lettering over took the need for a maul stick I moved into graphic design overseeing  team of designers, producers, fitters and sales people designing and making graphics for limited edition cars and fleet vehicles.

When the 90’s recession arrived I moved into teaching and found my dream job; teaching and making art in all disciplines. After 20 years I decided it was time to work full- time as an artist so I set up a studio in Oxfordshire and started showing my work and running workshops to a range of clients. I joined Oxfordshire Art Weeks and success grew from there, having group and solo exhibitions with many local artirts.

I continue to work in a range of media but seem to be specialising in dry media.

I have appeared in several magazine articles including Artists and Illustrators and an American journal ‘Color’.
