''I have spent my life involved in the visual arts in some form - from sketching as a youngster on the Wirral where I was drawn to the coastal beauty of the Dee and Mersey rivers to the wild and rugged north Cornish coast of West Penwith both as a student and during more recent years. Graduating from Bristol with a BA(Hons) degree in Fine Art fuelled my desire to continue to follow a creative journey and test my own potential as an artist and educator. I spent thirty years in secondary art education where I committed to encouraging and guiding younger artistic talents, before devoting myself full time to my own creative exploration. Since leaving the education sector in 2018 I have exhibited at Castle Park Arts in Cheshire in 2019 and 2021 with success, and have been selected to exhibit with Fronteer Art(Sheffield) in Chester at the end of August 2022, and I am due to have a joint exhibition at Castle Park Arts in September 2023. I have fulfilled several commissions and sold in and around the country over several years.''
