I Studied Educational Television Design (Graphics, film, video and education) at Plymouth College of Art. I then qualified to teach Primary and Middle School children teaching all subjects as well as running an Art Dept. in a Dorset Middle School. I finished my career as Head teacher of a local primary school.

I have been painting watercolours and acrylics for the last six years drawing my inspiration from travel and the Jurassic coast. I use my own photographic images which sometime develop into semi abstract paintings.

Through my paintings I raise money for Space for Giants (elephant protection) and the Health Centre at Chogoria near Mt Kenya.
