I have lived in and around Bradford in Avon for many years. I was the Art teacher at Lavington Secondary School, following training for a Dip. AD at the Bath Academy of Art. Since retiring, I have been working to establish my own art practice and have become a keen member of the Winsley Monday Group Portrait Group. I work mainly in oils, gouache and watercolour. I enjoy painting and drawing from the figure, both life drawing and portraits. I also paint landscapes and seascapes, gaining much inspiration from courses at the St. Ives School of Painting. I have recently been working on a series of watercolour paintings from flowers and plants.
