1985 Winchester School of Art – Foundation

1986-89 Cheltenham College of Art – Fine Art Degree (with HONs)

Student-day freedom of medium meant I could make things out of jelly or velvet.

The post-graduate Cow Shed years lead me to create a portfolio of bovine bronzes, whilst juggling employment and starting a family.



Commissioned work includes Rudy – The Brown Swiss Steer, Quercy – the Spanish Donkey, The Leaf Form (4ft garden piece), The Heron, Elephants, Water-buffalo, Alpaca mother and calf, a Coot, a beloved cat and commemorative hands.



I take part in the annual West Berks and North Hants Open Studio Scheme during May. I have been exhibiting locally and in Surrey for a number of years, and I have taken part in the Oxford International Art Fair in the past. In 2017 I had great success Exhibiting in the Craft Tent at the prestigious Royal County of Berkshire Agricultural Show in Newbury. Look out for me this year.
