I have been painting and drawing since the 60’s when I did a teacher training course in London. I graduated with a distinction in art and began my teaching career. I went back to teaching after my children went to school. To prepare for the return I did a one year course at Birmingham school of art in Margaret St. My interest in art continued through the years of teaching, attending evening classes and working at home. Latterly I have retired and been able to spend much more of my time mainly figure drawing and painting; however I take an interest in every sort of subject as inspiration.
