My first art practice was at Open Hand Studios in Reading, exhibiting sculpture widely, but also paintings, prints and drawings.Then, on moving to Cambridge, taking a studio at Wysing Arts while initiating the setting up of Cambridge Artwork Studios for artists in the city. This has exhibition and workshop facilities, and is still thriving. The current studio is in beautiful countryside in north Oxfordshire.
I worked mainly as a sculptor until five years ago when, after living in San Francisco for six months, I concentrated on oil painting.
I have taught many Adult Education classes, workshops and summer schools and done numerous projects with schools, going in as an Artist in Residence.
