I always enjoyed art at school and had a great teacher but not many options were available to further my artistic education in those days so I ended up working at a local photography studio touchingup black and white wedding photographs - yes they were all printed then, including the proofs. On a measely £7 per week I wanted to earn some real money so I went into the exciting world of office work (Insurancea and then sales) until 2007.

I have worked in Ceramics for the last 20 years after studying glass and ceramics at Sunderland University. My work consists of various brightly coloured vessels, bottles and a wide range ofsculptural figurative ceramics, based loosely around the 'head' and 'face'. These pieces are predominantly monochrome. All my work is handbuilt, giving each piece a unique character and presence.
I studied Fine Art at Luton and Stourbridge from 1968 - 1972. On leaving Art School I worked as a psychiatric nurse until 1987 when I became a full-time artist. From 1987 - 1996 I earned my livingmainly as a Pavement Artist, travelling to towns and cities throughout the country drawing large scale photo-realist portaits of famous faces and people in the news. I now look back on this period as a kind of apprenticeship for the Self Portrait Workshop.
