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. I am interested in trying to capture a sense of place, whether of landscape or the sea. Animals have always been important to me and this is reflected in my choice of subject. I've also recently returned to one of my great loves, life and portrait drawing.
