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.
