I was always moved by making, dance and music. I graduated from a B.A. Fine Art degree, and worked with fringe theatre groups in the early 70s and in 1975 I was a Post Grad student of Theatre Design at the Slade School of Fine Art. Moved on to working for theatres and studios in London and in the USA. Theatre design, costume props, costume making, model-making and costume jewellery work were my first work experiences. Many years later, I retrained and spent 6 years as an IT Support and graphics worker, before venturing to paint again.
Born in North East UK in the Fifties, I returned there after living and working in many places -
Birmingham, London, Chicago, (6 years), and Denver Colorado, USA.
