Born in Luton in 1941 I did not begin my education in design and craft until after my family and continued until 1993 when I graduated from Oxford Brookes University with a BSc Hons in Psychology and Visual Studies. Continued my education at the Paper and Book Intensive, Salt Lake City, & Portland, Oregon, Streamboat Springs, Colarado, USA2003/04/05. Observer Series ‘Music’ was a 2007 Winner of the Brigit Skiöld Memorial Trust Artist’s Book Purchase Award.
2009 ‘Book this space’ High Wycombe Library, High Wycombe, Bucks.
The versatility of paper allied to digital and collagraph printing, and using various binding methods all result in the book forms that I have produced to date.
