I have been drawing for as long as I can remember and after Foundation at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art, studied Graphics at Leeds Polytechnic. There I'd escape the dark satanic mills by bus and pedal, up to the Yorkshire Dales, finding a subject for my graduation project and an abiding fascination with the English landscape, its myths and meaning and the shaping of it by man's activities.

On graduation, I found a job in Manchester working with teachers to make learning materials more accessible (and hopefully more interesting!) to children who struggled with the written word. Since then, these two strands of landscape and learning have woven back and forth through my career with never a dull moment!
