Background

 

Art, especially painting, was my main passion at school, along with classical music. Being a good academic student however, I was encouraged to study a degree course in History of Art and French at London University (which I did not complete) and then as a financial necessity began a 12 year as a computer programmer and IT technical specialist for a major UK insurance company.

 

It was not until I reached 40 that I was in a position to fully engage with my love of art. I completed the Art & Design Access course at Stroud College, and then the technical practice of Printmaking attracted me, and I graduated from the University of Gloucestershire in 2004 with a BA in Fine Art Printmaking. I went on to help found and run the Gloucestershire Printmaking Co-operative, where I also taught etching.

 

I made the decision around 2009 to paint rather than print. A period of learning the techniques of oil painting with a teacher took place between 2009 -11. 

Classical music continues to be a passion. I started playing the violin aged 10 and I now have a marvellous violin teacher, Matthew Denton from the celebrated Carducci Quartet who helped me finally pass my Grade 8 with distinction in 2015! ( I was supposed to take it in 1978!!).

I lead the Stroud Symphony Orchestra, and also play with the Capriol Chamber Orchestra, in a chamber groups and with pianist Joshua Crunden.
