I have been a professional artist all of my life, beginning as a commercial designer creating surface designs, then moving into fine art attending the Flemish Academy of Fine Art in Leuven Belgium. Returning to the UK I then took a teachers training certificate and began teaching watercolour. I now demonstrate for Art Groups up and down the UK, have had 7 practical art books published and exhibit in Galleries (when I have the time). Im kept pretty busy just keeping up with life and thoroughly enjoy where the journey takes me. In May 2017 unexpected family illness has meant that my priorities are now dedicated entirely to my family.
