From a young age I had developed a love of drawing and painting and throughout my child hood to my later teens I knew I had wanted a career in Art.
I attended Harrow School of Art and then had attended for a short period the Camden Arts centre as a place to paint.
Due to family commitments I had had to put my Art on hold. I had joined a software house and worked within the Computer Industry as my family grew, my commitments were to them were foremost and I followed the path of computing. As my children left to follow their own careers, I was now free to pursue my own longed for career in Art.
In May 2008, I took early retirement and in the March 2009 decided to move to France to pursue my Painting. I returned to England in October 2010.
My work has been influenced by painters such as-: Dali, Esher, Pre-Raphaelites, the French impressionists and the old masters.
Much of my work has so far been based on my own personal observations and experiences of life.
