I qualified as a Graphic Designer at Leeds Metropolitan University, specialising in illustration, in 1986 and then gained a teaching qualification at Manchester University. Since then I have spent time as an Art teacher working in high schools, tertiary colleges and teaching adults. I work in a studio jointly with my partner Stuart Gray at Farfield Mill in Sedbergh, Cumbria. We love working in this old textile mill. It has such a charm and history. I mainly specialise in watercolour and like to try and capture the energy of the sea. I love the way that water reflects the surrounding force of nature with all its colours and intricate patterns.
