I have always painted, but am largely self - taught, apart from a year at the Ruskin School of Drawing. I have exhibited widely for several decades, mostly in Scotland and the North of England, and have worked colaboratively with other artists over many years. My teaching and workshops are also a part of my creative work, and I'm as equally at home with groups of children and teenagers as with adults.
