Elected 2022

I paint primarily in oils but enjoy experimenting with a range of media.  My inspiration comes mainly from my local surroundings and I find myself drawn to what is just around the corner or the negative spaces in a composition.

I studied Graphic Design at Leeds polytechnic back when they were a thing, before training as a teacher.  Shortly after starting my career, I made the mistake of standing too close to the shiny new BBC computer which, of course, made me the expert.  This took me away from art for some years to teach IT.  Until returning to art education.  I have spent over 30 years teaching in Leicestershire.
