Artist's Statement

I was born in Kent in 1950 and had a passion for drawing from an early age, I benefited greatly from a post-war education that gave time and status to Art .

I studied in Bristol ( Batchelor of Education Honours Degree 1972) and taught in Primary Schools 1972 - 2000. A move to Dorset in 1985 gave me the opportunity to study for  Illustration and Fine Art HNC qualifications at the Art Institute at Bournemouth .

I currently teach Life Drawing and short courses in pastels and watercolour, and work as a freelance illustrator.

Drawing is fundamental to my art work . I draw and paint directly from the subject using a spontaneous expressive line -  editing intuitively.  I am inspired by travel and seeing new places but equally respond to domestic subject matter -  intriguing arrangements, complex interiors and of course the ultimate challenge of figures and portraits.

I am an elected member of the Pastel Society and serve on the Council. I exhibit in various galleries and Open Exhibitions and have been awarded prizes at the Discerning Eye, New English Art Club and the Pastel Society
