I studied Fine Art at Exeter College of Art and since then have lived, worked and painted in Sheffield. After teaching in schools and universities for many years and gaining a Masters Degree and Doctorate in Education, I took early retirement to dedicate myself to an art career. I have a spacious studio at Yorkshire Art Space in Sheffield. I devote my time to painting in this studio and sketching in the landscape. I have exhibited successfully in many UK regional galleries , I also show at the Affordable Art Fairs in London, Singapore, Hong Kong and New York.
