How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

My work pivots around illustration, imaginings and drawing from life. My head is full of drawings that want to come out in one form or another! At the moment I'm concentrating on printmaking as well as painting but I also spend a lot of time making stained glass panels and lights.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Being an artist for me means being able to do whatever you want in whatever form that takes. Sometimes it's entirely private and for yourself but generally showing and selling work is all part of it. In my case I move between various disciplines which suits me very well.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I'm a painter/printmaker/stained glass artist/designer/sometimes potter

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I work mainly from my studio in Symonds Yat West but I now have the pleasure of occupying a wall of the wonderful 'Crows Feet' in Ross-On-Wye as well. I also show my work in various galleries, mainly in Herefordshire. My day to day practice is studio based and could be anything from sitting quietly drawing to grinding and leading glass to painting or running a print through my press. I sometimes offer small printmaking workshops.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

BA in Graphic Design/ Visual Communication - Bath Academy Of Art
I have also learnt through skilled/trained friends with whom I've shared studios in the past, how to throw, glaze and handbuild pots and some of the ins and outs of stained glass painting and construction.
