I studied for a degree in Textile Design (with Fine Art) at the University for the Creative Arts in Surrey, graduating in 1976, I then qualified as a teacher. Since then I have painted landscapes using gouache watercolours, taught in primary schools and more recently discovered the joys of linocut printing and am now an Associate Member of Leicester Print Workshop.
I spend half of the year on a narrow boat exploring the navigable waterways of England and get my inspiration from the landscapes and wildlife around me. I enjoy the whole process of lino printing, from taking the photos, drawing out the design, transferring it to the lino, cutting and printing and refining the linocut for the final picture. My work is regularly exhibited in The Gallery at Bingham and at Meander and Mooch in Newark.
