Born South London. Later in the 50’s studied Sculpture with Ben Franklin, at Redhill and Reigate School of Arts and Crafts, then at Goldsmiths College with Ivor Roberts Jones. Later I was awarded a Post Graduate year and did some work with Menashi Kadishman (the Israeli Sculptor) at Wimbledon.
Over the years I brought up my two sons as a single parent and taught life drawing, sculpture and art subjects, and have travelled with frequent visits to West Africa. Based in Brighton, UK, I work in my studio at Phoenix Art Space where I also facilitate regular six weekly Tutorless Life Drawing sessions.
