Painter and textile artist
When I was growing up my two passions in life were, and probably still are, nature and art. After playing outside I would always rush to look up the plants, birds or insects I’d just seen, in the only nature identification we had at that time, the AA Book of The Road! Upon leaving school I had to make the excrutiatingly difficult choice between art and science and finally decided to pursue a degree in Zoology, along the way studying Geology, Botany and Biology. However, the desire to make and create never went away and I finally got the opportunity to study art as a mature student completing an Art Foundation course and HNC Design Crafts at North Oxfordshire College.
