Whilst I have always had an interest in Art, I came to it more seriously later in life. Having spent thirty years in the NHS as a clinician and in management, the time had come to pursue my creative interests.

 

Initially enrolling at Malvern School of Art for their Fine Art and Contemporary Craft degree programme,  I went on to study for my BA (Hons) Fine Art at Hereford College of Art. I was lucky enough to be given the Sidney Nolan Trust Award on graduation and am looking forward to a residency at The Rodd in 2021. 2020/21 sees me return to Hereford College of Arts for my MA in Fine Art.

The last two years have seen my Fine Art practice developing in new ways. My work still has a narrative to it, although this is now more concerned with inter-human relationships, sometimes informed by my NHS experiences. Much of my work is now 3D and I am currently working in ceramics and bronze.
