I have always had an interest in art, but a busy career in education and educational publishing left me no time to pursue it. However, when I retired from full-time employment I took up painting, and have followed a number of short courses at Chelsea School of Art, Kensington and Chelsea College and Heatherley’s.

I generally prefer working in oil paint because of its tactile quality, its richness of texture and its adaptability, but I often use acrylics when I need a quick-drying medium.

My subjects range from still life to landscape, life studies and portraits.
