I have taught Art all my working life, latterly at The Girls' Grammar School, Bradford. Now that I am retired I am really enjoying finally having the time to do more of my own work. Having taught all aspects of Art I have tended to be a 'Jack of all trades and master of nothing'!
I was trained in ceramics, which I am beginning to return to. However, I have loved being on 'the other side of the desk' and have recently been learning to etch. This is a wonderful process if you enjoy drawing. I have also done more oil painting and watercolour and I err towards floral imagery (I also did a floristry B Tec), thoroughly enjoying the colour and paint.
My work, on the whole, is fairly literal recording of my surroundings and the places that I visit, but I can't help exaggerating colour.
