I studied for a BA in ceramics at Cardiff Art College under Alan Barret Danes and Geof Swindell between; 1978-1982 and have a PGCE in art and design from Birmingham Art College.  I also studied life drawing at Llanover Hall Arts Centre under Mike Flynn a well-known ceramic sculptor; I studied printmaking at Sydney Place, Bath Academy of Art.

I taught life drawing for many years first at Frome, Somerset then later at Plymouth College of Art and clay sculpture modelling at Tavistock.

My early work was mainly figurative and print based, based on life drawing, actors and musicians. I have exhibited my work in Cardiff, Bath, Bristol (West of England Royal Academy, twice), Frome and Dartington Hall. My latest works are based on my love of the South West shoreline but still with the interaction of figures and more recently my love of the moors and my trip to New Zealand.
