BA (Hons) Fine Art, Cardiff
Following a foundation diploma in art at Wrexham in north Wales I studied for my BA degree over three years at Howard Gardens in Cardiff. By my final year I became interested in making large, semi abstract paintings which were based on historical or political subject matter.
Post Graduate Diploma & Early career
For my post graduate diploma I studied theatre design, scenic art, costume and prop making at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Cardiff. This was followed by an almost twenty year career in the media beginning at the props department at HTV. Then in television, theatre, film and exhibitions as a designer and art director.
MA degree and Teaching
Although I had been lecturing on a part time basis since the 1990's I began teaching art full time in 2001. I have been a Head of Art in two secondary schools. I gained an MA in Fine Art in 2010. I now work full time as an artist on personal projects and private commissions .
