I studied at Loughborough College of Art and Design in the mid 1960’s but it was not until I moved to Guernsey that I started to create art again. I also have a Post Graduate Certificate in The Archaeology of Standing Buildings from the De Montfort University Leicester.

After completing a degree in Art History and social history with the Open University where I gained First Class Honours, I began to paint and draw with a new sense of the importance of place and collective consciousness in society and how art reflects change and continuity through time..

I have taken part in several exhibitions in Guernsey and have also been a committee member, coordinator and Chair of the Guernsey Art Network., during this time I was involved in organising and curating art exhibitions.Recently I have been creating a series of paintings entitled “Marks in the Landscape “ for an upcoming solo exhibition at the Greenhouse Gallery in Candie Museum. At the moment I am exploring shapes created by the island rock formations and the rock art of pre-historic cultures. Life drawing is also one of the artistic genres that I find not only enjoyable but challenging. The human body in all its shapes and sizes can be interpreted in so many ways showing us our vulnerabilities and strenghs,physically and emotionally.
