  Classical Realism has been my greatest influence for as long as I can remember. From a child I studied the Italian and Dutch painters with my father, an accomplished professional painter who worked alongside the Italian master Pietro Annogoni for a period.

I studied for my degree in Graphic Design and Illustration and went on to illustrate for the BBC and several London and Welsh educational publishers.

Being a single parent, in order to spend time with and bring up my son I went into teaching and was fortunate to find a teaching position at Kings school in Rochester Kent. Kings was a reputable public school with a large prolific art department, which I went on to run for many happy years, whilst simultaneously continueing my illustration and portrait commissions.

I exhibited in several galleries in Kent during the 1980's and 90's.

Having made the difficult decision to leave teaching and move to Wales, it was time to follow my heart as a painter.

I continue to teach three private groups of mature students on a weekly basis, with thirty students in total but having the time now to pursue my work as an painter, I am in the process of putting more of my work in the public eye. I am also experimenting in new fields of abstract art as well as continueing with my love of realism..nnnn
