I trained as a painter through the foundation course at Ealing College of Art, London. This led me to Leeds University, UK, for my B.A in Fine Arts. My main subject was oil painting – with printmaking as an elective.
After graduating, I worked as an illustrator for the London Zoological Society.
On arrival in Canberra, I was employed as a lecturer in Painting at the Canberra School of Art.
Other work includes:
– Botanic illustrator for the Canberra Botanic Gardens;
– illustrator in the Instructional Resources Unit at the Australian National University;
– Lecturer in Architecture, University of Canberra.
In 1988, because of my keen interest in drawing and the fine line, I returned to printmaking at Studio One, Canberra. Since moving to the Sunshine Coast in 1997, I have featured in many group and solo printmaking exhibitions. I have also facilitated many print (etching) workshops.
