I was born in England in 1947. Very early in my life I found that I was artistic. I won prizes at school for my art. When I left school I did several evening classes; Portraits; Drawing and Painting. I started my art career with McGraw-Hill Publishing Company as a Layout Artist, working on the Magazines; Metalworking Production and Boilermakers Review. I regularly produced line drawings for publication in those magazines.
The company held a competition to design a new logo for one of the magazines. I won this and my new logo appeared on the cover of Metalworking Production.
After several years I moved to another publishing company in order to expand my horizons. I worked on the magazine layout for Dog's Life; Shooting Times and Yachtsman. Here also, I produced drawings and advertisements for publication.
After having a break of Three years to have a family I returned to the workforce. This time as an Engineering Tracer/Draftsperson. During the years after I left school I continued to paint and draw and was able to sell these.
About Ten years ago I started to sell my work in Galleries and exhibitions. Having no real formal training I have developed my own distinctive style. I work in Acrylic, Goache, Pencil, Pastel and Pen and Ink. My work is inspired by nature and wildlife.
I moved to New South Wales, Australia with my family in 1982
