I graduated from Camberwell College of Art with a BA hons degree in illustration in 1991. I then completed a PGCE in secondary art teaching at Goldsmiths College.
The subject matter of my art often derives from my love of nature, but I am also inspired by fairytales, nursery rhymes, and poetry. I like incorporating bold compositions with an abstract quality and often use complimentary colours. Influences are many and varied, but amongst printmakers I admire Rigby Graham and Edward Bawden.
I have had three books, illustrated with linocuts, published by Incline Press, and my work has appeared in a further five books published by Mascot Media. I have also had five educational software titles published by Inclusive Technology, the first of which was shortlisted for a BETT award in 2005. If you are interested in my software and where to find it then look at my links page.
When not working hard at my art, I work as a teacher of students with severe learning difficulties in North London.
I hope you enjoy exploring my website.
