“Following a 2-year Commercial Art course at the Derby & District College of Art, worked as a ceramic screen printer at the Royal Crown Derby Porcelain factory, 4 years producing artwork for screen printing and the next 18 years working as an off-set litho printer.

I have had a few commissions over the years for oil and watercolour paintings. Since retirement joined DSC where I enjoy portraiture and life drawing. I also enjoy sketching landscapes.”
