Something about me

I was born in the North of England where the moorlands of Northumberland and the mountainous landscapes of Cumberland continue to inspire most of my artwork in one way or another. I think these places directed me towards a career in art, ceramics and photography.

• I lived for several years in Wiltshire, with rolling chalk downlands, ancient hillforts and stone circles.

• I left there to study Art at College in Gloucestershire, and discovered Ceramics.

• I moved to Canterbury in Kent to study Ceramics & Education, then taught for some years in school, art college, prisons and on in-service courses for teachers.

• Migrated to Australia and transitioned from being a lecturer in Ceramics to a career in childrens' book Illustration.

• After returning to the UK I continued illustrating for a living with some part time ceramics lecturing and 3D computer modeling.

Significantly it was the ancient chalk downlands with their prehistoric stone circles and other features whic gave me an appreciation and love for history and archaeology.
