I was born in Leigh-on-Sea and moved with my family to Norwich at the age of eight. Foundation courses at Great Yarmouth College of Art and Design and Norwich School of Art were followed by a fine art degree at Sunderland Polytechnic. It was there I met fellow artist Liz Edwards, a constant inspiration since. We married and settled in Harrow, where we brought up our three children, all now adults.

About fifteen years ago I was inspired to take up watercolours by the work and techniques of David Curtis. Subsequently, I started to investigate other materials and to concentrate less on observation and more on feelings and subconscious images, whilst retaining a love for the translucence of watercolours, inks and eventually, silicone sealer, which I use with found material.
