I am a freelance artist and qualified Adult Education tutor, specialising in illustration, equestrian art, animals and portraiture. I originally trained for 4 years in Graphic Design at Loughborough College of Art and Design, and then in 1990 worked for a design department for 10 years. During those years I found I preferred illustration, so in 2000 I went freelance to pursue that path.
Since moving to Cumbria, I trained as an Adult Education tutor and now teach drawing and watercolours to beginners. Alongside that, I paint portraits, greeting cards and accept commissions.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic I have had to abandon teaching, so I am now able to spend more time on commissions during the lockdown.
