I studied Fine Art at Leeds University, exploring my painting practice as well as history of art. Returning to London, where I was born, I spent 15 years working in Set Design for BBC TV. Subsequently I lived for about a year in Barcelona, re-igniting an enduring passion for the spatial drama and architecture of old cities.
A Masters in Animation and Illustration at Kingston University followed. On returning to live in the West Country and by now enraptured by 50s fashion illustration and the animation and children’s book illustration of the 60s, my painting has become more gestural and “painterly”.
