I was born in Hackney, London in 1947 and have lived in Leeds since the age of 8.
In 1972 I studied life drawing with Patrick Oliver at Swarthmore Educational Centre Leeds for a number of years. In 1988 I started and completed a 3 year Fine Arts and Crafts Diploma course at Leeds College of Art (formerly Jacob Kramer College) under the guidance of Gary Barker.
My work I feel is about discovering interesting imagery by use of line, colour and shape. Quite often a previous work will suggest ideas for the next, although external objects can also be a starting point, but above all it has to be constructed play.
A brush with life!
