I studied at Bath Academy of Art. Ceramics was my specialist subject in a broad based art school -teacher training course. I have taught art and ceramics throughout my working life. Teaching secondary school pupils up to Ò/A Level,evening classes and also worked for the Bell Language School using Art and Ceramics to 'teach' English to foreign students. Whilst I was teaching I painted, selling work at exhibitions and privately. Since retiring from teaching I have returned to my own ceramic work, making mainly ceramic planters, most of which are based upon faces and heads.
