Previous Experience

I have taught a small watercolour class in my house most weeks since 2011.

I have exhibited in Fiveways Artists Open Houses in the 1990's, had exhibitions in Lancing Library, Michelham Priory, Oxmarket Centre (Chichester), been published in "An Introduction to Painting Flowers" by Elisabeth Harden (The Apple Press 1994 ISBN 1-85076-536-7) and cover/inside illustration for "Coffee Wisdom" by Theresa Cheung (Conari Press 2003 ISBN 1-57324-865-7). I have completed various private commissions, and paint regularly every week. I have Certificates in Art and Printmaking from the University of Brighton, and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Sussex.


I am also a freelance writer of scientific and medical book indexes since 1994.
