in a nutshell:
Foundation course at Reigate School of Art and Design, BTEC General Art & Design, 1997
Graphic Design & Illustration at Surrey Institute of Art and Design (now UCA), BA(Hons) Graphic Design, 2000
Working as a freelance artist, graphic designer and illustrator since 2000.
I also teach GCSE art and media in Alternative Provision schools, and am available for workshops, demonstrations and private tuition.
Below are a couple of YouTube links featuring my words of wisdom: the first one is from the MGSO4 festival, Epsom 2018, where my assemblage 'a game of consequences was selected as Judges' Choice; the second is an audio recording of the artists' panel from the Extreme Imagination conference in Exeter, 2019. My painting 'unfinished business - I had a bad day' was featured in the exhibition accompanying the conference .
Start at 3:37 to hear me blather about my assemblage, or skip to 17:25 to hear one of the judges explain her choice!
I talk about my painting & hyperphantasia from 18-22 mins; Q&A involving all of us runs from 36:50 to the end.
