After a degree in languages at UEA in Norwich, and some years abroad teaching TEFL, I returned to study at De Montfort University for my Art Foundation and a Certificate of HE in Fine Art.
Now I run after school art clubs in Shrewsbury and Morda, and am a founding director of Raven Studios in Shrewsbury, where I have my studio space, a Trustee of the Visual Art Network for Shropshire and a member of the Regional Print Centre in Wrexham. At Raven Studios I am currently hosting a weekly Zoom Social Studios session to connect and encourage isolated artists.
My artwork is based on drawing, printmaking and painting in oils. My subject matter ranges from still life and observations out walking, to an inner emotional landscape.
The pieces in Shape and Colour are end of the day musings – whenever there are odd bits of paint left on my palette, I like to play about with them.
