More About Me

My subject matter is inspired by personal observations and experiences, storytelling & the human condition.   About half of my work has always been figurative  while the other designer half of me focuses on printmaking and bookmaking. At times these two creative personas meet. Recent prints have  used letterpress text with silkscreen returning to my graphic roots in text and print from when I studied Graphic Design & Illustration at Camberwell School of Art. There I made my first artists books and fell in love with printmaking. After Camberwell I went on to Post-Graduate Printmaking at Brighton School of Art then moved into teaching and gained MA in Art and Education at U.C.E. in Birmingham. For many years I taught art working in Community projects and in Arts in Health/Therapeutic Arts provision. Now I concentrate on making my own work. I am a member of the Regional Print Centre,   Marches Book Arts Group  and The British Printing Society https://www.bpsnet.org.uk/.
