About me

I trained as a graphic designer at West Herts University in Watford, Hertfordshire and have the following qualifications.

  • HND Graphic Design
  • B A (Hons) Image Making and Design
  • Post Grad, Digital Post Production

I have worked in oils since I was a child, when I was given my first stretched canvas and paints at the age of five. My artwork received awards at school, but I was encouraged to take up hairdressing and beauty care when I left school. In those days it was generally felt that getting a trade was more important.

After my children started school, I decided to continue my education and joined Watford School of Art, where I continued to improve my life drawing and photography skills.

Since graduating I have worked as a graphic designer, both in the private and public sector.  Examples of my commerical design work can be seen at   

Some of my design are available to buy on clothing and house hold products at  

My love of drawing and painting has not diminished and now my children are no longer dependent on me, I am happily finding more time to make the art I want to create.
