I never get over the thrill when a new gallery would like to see my work with the prospect of selling it! It’s such a wonderful feeling of value.
As designers and makers, please forgive me for speaking for the many, we work away with our planning, designing and making often on our own for hours! We love our friends and our chats and sometimes someone lights up and is interested in our monologue of what we have been busy doing! We still seem to be a small breed of people who enjoy looking, listening and discovering what an object feels like. These things we try to transpose into our work and exude some sort of experience that we wish to convey to a viewer and customer. So, when a gallery “gets your work” and thinks it’s “beautiful” and wants to display your work to sell it’s a joyous moment! I haven’t got over that feeling, it’s second only to that of the joy of Christmas!

I’m an art teacher in the community teaching drawing, painting, and crafts in Birmingham, Solihull, and Warwickshire.
I create my own small clay work, felting and mixed media artwork and these are displayed with prints of my work at various galleries, currently Birmingham, Kenilworth, Royal Leamington Spa. I have also exhibited collage in The Herbert Art Gallery, Coventry.
I graduated with BA(Hons) from the University of Central England (formerly Birmingham Polytechnic) many years ago! I went on to complete PGCE(PCE) and have thoroughly enjoyed teaching art and craft ever since!
I teach for several institutions and am also freelance. My private art classes began in Solihull January 2018. Please drop me a line using the Contact page if you would like further information and to make purchases of my art and craft artwork.
Thank you for visiting my site and hope to see you soon!
