I graduated from the University for the Creative Arts - Farnham, where I studied Fine Art in July 2012.
I am also a teacher. I have had experience teaching all ages in the junior sector and art at secondary school. These postings were in Rhodesia, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
In August 2014 I completed over a 100 images for an exciting illustration project with EQUIPT-ELT - Education Development and Quality Improvement Project for English Language Teacher Training in Tanzania. - a transition course, improving English for new secondary school entrants.
A second illustration project I have completed is a series of illustrations for the novel,"Call of the Mourning Dove" by Christine Gordon, friend who has written a fictional work based on her grandfather, a missionary to Rhodesia.
I have the privilege of being a member of the KAN KAN Collective artist group. We meet once a month to encourage, discuss, plan, and debate. We have exhibitions in the pipeline, artist residencies opportunities forth coming, exciting workshops planned, outings organised, and possible community work with high school pupils to look forward to.

PAREIDOLIA, in a nutshell, is the ability to see faces, or other things, where there isn't one.
"In his notebooks, Leonardo da Vinci wrote of pareidolia as a device for painters, writing "if you look at any walls spotted with various stains.... if you are about to invent some scene you will be able to see in it a resemblance to various different landscapes adorned with mountains, rivers, rocks, trees, plains, wide valleys and various groups of hills. You will also be able to see divers, combats and figures in quick movement, and strange expressions of faces, and outlandish costumes, and an infinite number of things which you can then reduce into separate and well conceived forms."
These imaginings, or seeings, with the aid of drawing, become my Gazoonkas
