I left school with an A level in art. It was later on that I opened a small shop in my local town and sold my artwork. From there I started teaching art classes which were successful. I moved to Australia for 8 years and continued teaching art classes. After moving back to the UK, I took the decision to teach full time which was a good decision. I started doing demonstrations for local art groups and loved this. It expanded from there. I'm now still a full time teacher, and I also do demonstrations up and down the country at art venues and shows, I also do workshops in various locations. My whole life is revolved around art and I am totally committed and passionate about it.
