Although I went to art college in my teens it would be a good many years before I had the time to start painting again and of course things had changed a lot in that time. I mostly taught myself watercolour from books and demonstrations and have since gone on many courses. My first love is watercolour and mixed media. I was artist in residence at Polesden Lacey in Surrey for four years when we lived there and gave demonstrations to a small art group. I now teach from our home in Wivenhoe Essex and exhibit locally.
