I have enjoyed drawing and painting all my life, so it seemed natural to go on to study art after leaving school.After a year at Newcastle College of Art and three years at Bath Academy of Art, I graduated as a graphic designer, and earned my living in this profession.
I have recently retired, so now have time to concentrate on my passion for drawing and painting, which has been a life long adventure in learning the art of making my mark. I have, to date, exhibited in various locations in the north east and since carried out commissions in both design and illustration.
Currently, I am exploring the use of acrylics but also like to explore use of oils, watercolour, pastel and pencil. Most of my subject matter, the people and the places, and big skies, are inspired by where I live, in Northumberland.
