I'm a practicing artist, and most often use oil pastels and acrylic, though anything else is possible. I also make prints (usually etchings) when I can. I have many years experience in the community arts, and I am a founder member of Borderland Visual Arts, the Oswestry-based contemporary art group. I currently mostly teach through the WEA, in Chester, but all things being equal, I'm available to teach any group or individual. My formal teaching experience goes back over 15 years. My qualifications include an M.A. in Contemporary Art Studies (Liverpool University, a P.G.C.E., and the F.A.E.Teaching Certificate. I am told I am a very good teacher.
