  • BA[Hons] Visual Art, and MA Painting from University of Wales
  • Art Teachers’ Certificate, Goldsmiths’ College, London

A lengthy career in art education culminated in two demanding roles: head of a secondary school department that encompassed Fine Art, History of Art and Design and Technology and participation as a team member with the Independent Schools’ Inspectorate.

This never prevented continuity with personal artistic developments –  in fact there was a mutual benefit.
