Studied 3-D design majoring in ceramics. Taught for nearly 40 years in a variety of age groups. Now retired and returning to rekindling my love of the natural world, particularly organic forms with an added touch of drama. Found objects, walking the countryside in all weathers and photos act as my inspiration round which I build the composition. I like the immediacy of acrylic, but have worked in oils, watercolour and mixed media to produce surface texture.
