Early life and education in Enfield,  including four years of Saturday classes at Hornsey School of Art. After school I trained as a cartographer at the Ordance Survey in Southampton, but never, for a second, gave up on art. Next followed marriage and two children. On moving to Suffolk in 1969, I trained as a teacher.

After  a career in art teaching up to 'A Level' and adult education, I retired and went back into my own education by completing an MA in Fine Art  . Now living in Sudbury, Suffolk pushing the boundaries of my art practice and exhibiting new paintings.
