Training in Brighton at a time when art colleges disapproved of life drawing “why draw when you can take a photograph!” I became part of a group of guerrilla life drawers with a life-long passion for figure work. I have developed it through lithography, acrylic, watercolour and lately the new Inktense pencils and paints.
My most recent work aims to capture both the illusion of drawing and the mood and personality of my models, hence the ‘Peaces of’ titles.
I also work as a designer, and last July, designed the stage, costumes and graphics for a professional Open-Air production of ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’. Finally, I have produced a set of Animations on Basic Design which I developed whilst teaching as a teaching aid.
Recently relocating from Brighton, I now live in beautiful Port Sunlight Village.
