I studied Fine Art in the 1980s at Loughborough College of Art & Design and at The University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, exhibiting and selling my work in a variety of venues from Settle in North Yorkshire to Covent Garden in London.
I have developed my painting alongside my work as an illustrator, graphic designer and publishing manager at Loughborough University. Experience, knowledge and understanding of book design and production enable me to deliver publications from design concepts to delivery in print and electronic media.
During the 1990s I undertook a Masters degree to research the impact of illustration in publications. I regularly illustrate books and also exhibit illustrative work.
I am married with three children and enjoy music of many kinds, often performed by family members!
