I have been teaching since 1984 in a very wide variety of schools: Primary, Secondary, Independent and State, and during this time I’ve taught Art, Art [Graphics] and Art [Photography]. I’ve been Head of Department [Media Studies] at Gordonstoun School and a Visiting Art Specialist in Moray. I currently teach Art, Photography and Media Studies at Westonbirt School, Tetbury. Since July 2017 I have my own studio in Cornwall.

Collections: Prints and paintings are held in several private collections in the UK
