I studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Maidstone College of Art. After getting a BA I decided to teach and took an ATC (Art Teachers Certificate) at Brighton College of Art.
After many enjoyable years of teaching in Secondary Schools and Adult Education I decided to pursue my own artistic interests.
I am now a practising Printmaker specialising in linocutting. I find it incredibly satisfying to see an idea evolve as I chip away at the lino, ink up the block and finally peel back the paper to reveal the printed image.
Recently I have donned mask, safety secs and gloves (PPE) and experimented with etched lino, the results can be unpredictable but exciting.
