I have been painting and drawing all my life.
My formal training is as follows:
Art School Newcastle South Australia: Completed 2 year foundation Fine Art course.
After this I was accepted to enter Sydney Art College but decided to return home to England.
Four years Teachers Training course at Bishop Grosseteste University College Lincoln. My major subject was Ceramics. (B Ed Hons))
My career since college has been : Art Teaching within Adult, Secondary and Primary establishments.(Over 30 years)
I retired from teaching in 2008. This has enabled me to concentrate fully on my love of Art and Photography.
I have exhibited successfully in many local venues selling paintings on a regular basis. I had two successful exhibitions at The Grange Art Gallery in Rottingdean in 2010 and 2011.
In October 2012 I will be exhibiting my work with other Brighton artists in Normandy France.
Two years running I have got to the final 400 out of 4000 entries in The Open Art Competition. This year I am submitting my latest painting Buddah and Flowers which you can view at www.easyart.com. Reproductions of my work are available to buy on the site.
www.artgallery.co.uk has originals of mine for sale at very reasonable prices.
