I studied graphics at Bristol Polytechnic then went on to earn a living from art and design throughout the last 40 years. I have had a very varied career involving everything from design for print, display work to paintings and illustrations. Now I am retired I have a lot more time to paint, I have joined 2 local art groups, the Old Bakery Artists and Chilcompton Art Group. I am proud to say that three of my paintings are in the permanent collection at Midsomer Norton Town Hall. I am even prouder that "Cat with Cushions" was selected for the November edition of Leisure Painter 2017.
