I am an assistant head teacher at a busy primary school in Hertfordshire. I love my job but art is my relaxation and passion. It totally absorbs me and clears my mind of anything to do with work!
Possibly as a result of my early career as a tool designer in mechanical engineering, I particularly enjoy detail in a picture and this has led me towards depicting animals and wildlife. Fur and feather are enjoyable challenges and I continually develop my style by observing and talking with other artists. I am almost entirely self-taught and my preferred medium is colour pencil.
I belong to an informal local art group where we meet each week to paint and draw together. I have exhibited as part of the group at several locations in recent years and now, encouraged by friends and family, I am selling original pieces, prints and cards.
