Born and educated in Leeds, I developed an interest in art and craft from an early age. My further education continued in Bristol, where I taught for many years, before taking up several promoted posts in the North East.
Combining my love of History and Art, I painted the "Six Wives of Henry VIII”, then a further six canvasses which completed the "Meet the Tudors" series.  More recently, I have produced and sold artwork using watercolours, acrylics, line and wash, gouaches, inks, lino-cuts & printing techniques.
I have exhibited at galleries at Kirkleatham Hall, Danby Moors Centre, Stockton, Guisborough, Palace Arts Redcar, Leeds, Stokesley and Nunthorpe.
