After graduating from West Surrey College of Art and Design, Farnham with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art (painting) in 1979, I moved to Norway and later France where I lived until returning to England in 2000.

Here, I completed a PGCE in Art (secondary) at the University of Exeter and taught art in a male prison in Dorset for 10 years, being employed by Strode College, A4e and Weston College in this capacity.

During this time, I studied for an MA in Fine Art (sculpture) at the Arts University Bournemouth, graduating in 2013.
I based my work for this on the conditions, both physical and mental, endured inside the prison where I taught.
I have exhibited regularly since first graduating in 1979, both in solo and collective shows and have participated in several larger exhibitions such as the Ostlandsutstilling in Oslo, the Salon d’Automne at the Grand Palais, Paris, the SWA held in the Mall Galleries, London and the RWA in Bristol.

I am a salon member of Dorset Visual Arts, and as such participate in Dorset Art Weeks and a member of Wessex Contemporary Arts (Wesca) and show regularly with this group.
