All about Me!!!
Born in 1954 I have spent a lifetime drawing and painting, both as a hobby and as a part time source of income. I received formal tuition in art during the 1970s, and have continued over the years to develop my craft.
A qualified Social Worker and specialist in Autism Spectrum Conditions, I pursued a career in this field, becoming an area manager for the National Autistic Society. I now work freelance in this field both in UK and Cyprus.
Having given up ‘the day job’ I am able to devote more time to my artwork, and largely work on a ‘commissioned’ basis.
I have also written and illustrated three children’s books- The adventures of Noggin Clontith- the story of a Gnome and his friends. Following this I animated and produced a DVD of Noggin’s Adventures, in collaboration with a group of fellow musicians.
I have also produced ' CYBER GRAN' and 'Olivia Jayne and the Dinosaur'.
I produced illustrations for ' Eating Biscuits in a field' - poems by Steve Cartwright
My online exhibition and catalogue is designed to showcase my range. Some paintings have been printed and sold as limited edition copies. Some have been re - painted to order.
I am currently in the process of establishing an Arts Centre including studio/ gallery and craft centre in Kouklia, Cyprus (with great thanks to Cypriot and some friends from other countries) – which is due to open during the first or second week of April.
