All I ever wanted to do from a very young age was draw and paint. I stayed on at school just long enough to get the minimum qualifactions to apply to art school. After my foundation year I embarked on a three year degree course in Information Graphics. An evening class in drypoint inspired me to explore printmaking in more depth. I was able to do a regular course in printmaking alongside a succesful freelance career as an Art Editor on illustrated books.
I still get a thrill every time a print comes off the press, there are so many ways and combinations of techniques to explore, I don't think I could ever get bored. I work from my studio at the end of my garden, and also teach regular classes and workshops.
