In the early 80's I attended Falmouth School of Art where I attained a degree specialising in Print Making. After graduating I continued to study and a few years later graduated as an Art Therapist holding a number of positions before finally becoming Director of Mental Health Services in a nearby Trust. Having two teenage boys keeps me busy and I only get to paint at the weekends as I'm normally up early and back late from work. Maybe in a few years when I retire I can focus more on my art and develop my skills further. Meanwhile I will continue to paint as it's the little time I get to indulge myself in what I really enjoy.
