I did a Foundation Year at college in Bedfordshire, which provided a solid grounding in drawing and observational skills. I went on to study History and History of Art at the University of London and pursued a career in publishing, returning to my love of drawing and painting after raising a family.
Studying with various mixed-media artists has influenced my practice, so that colour and texture figure strongly in my work. A sense of place, whether local or far away, is becoming increasingly important to me, though this combines with a great interest in painting animals and people.
