An early interest in computing funded drama school (Stanislavsky Institute and Actor's Workshop - both London) and singing lessons at Wigmore Hall, as well as funding a lot of overland travelling.
I began making paintings and wall-sculptures in my mid-twenties, whilst maintaining an active interest in computing. In my early thirties, I decided to go to art school - at the University of Northumbria, gaining a B.A.(hons) in Fine Art, and did a post-graduate course at Newcastle University.
Since marrying and having a family, my art became less of a priority, and I became more interested in computing, but over recent years painting and making sculptures has re-emerged as a central focus of my life.
I moved from London to the Kent countryside in 1990, and have lived near to Faversham since 2009.
