A three year diploma course in Graphic Design at High Wycombe College of Art led to a career in design and illustration. Since 1988 I have been able to paint on a full-time basis, initially using pastel.
I now also paint in acrylic, oils or mixed -media including collage and subjects include landscape, townscapes, coastal scenes and forests.
I exhibit work mainly in London and the south and my work has been selected for the following group exhibitions.
