I have exhibited and sold art work at
The Mall Gallery, London
After spending 4 years at St Martins studying National Diploma in Design fine art, I became interested in Japanese/ Korean pottery.
I spent from 1966 until 1995 in the teaching profession but in the ‘70’s took up pottery as a part time activity and attended an evening class under Tony Gant.
In 1979 I joined the ‘Surrey Guild of Craftsmen’ and later ‘London Potters’ and began producing Raku Pottery.
In 1995 I began painting again and concentrated on the human form.
This exhibition of paintings was chosen from my work during the period 1995 – 2005.
Children will only be allowed entry to the exhibition
accompanied by a parent or Guardian.
