After being a passive observer and lover of art I feel very lucky to be painting. My living of life and love of colour feeds it.
Without formal art education, learning by doing- working alongside artists in Patagonia, Easter Island, The Galapagos Islands, Cuba, Cornwall and Spain.
I use my creative exploration in other ways, and am an inventor- currently taking my first product to market with Lime Banana Ltd.
Self employed for over 20 years in health care and working with doctors.
15 years in hospitality management- mostly 5 star hotels and long stay hospitals, Lecturer in applied business studies, degree course writing and implementing.
Co-wrote educational computer games. Marketing Manager for the University of Bristol- team to set up the commercial arm.
Explored South America on my own to travel, walk,
appreciate beauty, see other cultures, have fun, find courage and investigate some of the research I’d been doing.
also discovered my love of painting
Lived in Cornwall for a year- distinction (foundation diploma in fine art course), volunteered on a boat building project.
Converted my Berlingo van into a studio, lived in Spain for a year to apprentice with artists. I sold my property and relocated to Hove to dedicate myself to my business project and painting.
And I have found my passions. Thank you.
thank you for looking at my web site.
I once imagined my next breath was my last. It's an interesting thing to do.
