I found I had very little time for my own work after I was appointed Head of Art at Tudor Hall School. I retired in 2003 and began working as a print artist in my etching studio and exhibiting with the Leamington Studio Artists.

My work is based on three themes - the female nude, ancient textiles and my travels abroad.

All my figurative work is based on drawings done from the female nude. Eastern textiles inspire my colour etchings. I always take my sketchbook and a camera with me on my travels hoping when I return home I will be able to combine the two to make a good design for a print.
