About Me:
I first studied art many years ago at the Universidad de Las Americas - while living in Mexico in the 70s. This included the unique and privileged experience of drawing the local Mexican Indians in Life-Drawing and Portrait sessions.
Back in the UK, I studied a full-time degree course in English at Swansea University which included Art History.
In between children and working, I have attended numerous short courses from stencilling and distressing furniture to colour-theory, different painting techniques, portrait and life-drawing, etc.
More recently, in 2014, I attended a full-time Access Course at the Somerset Art College in Taunton which gave me the push I needed to actually get going again and the opportunity to do a degree if I wanted to.
In between painting, developing and exhibiting my own work, I attend any short art-courses of interest at the Bristol Art Centre in Park Street.
