As a child I played with paint, had a chemistry set and microscope, tried to hatch a silkworm moth, and collected fossils. Discovery and creativity continued to be twin passions I pursued in my varied career as a research scientist, expedition leader, trainer, coach and facilitator. These experiences are part of the rich tangle of roots that feed and nourish my practice as an artist.

A studied with the Open College of Arts and have a 1st class BA Honours Painting.
