Educational History  

Attended private school at the age of five. The only achievement I can remember, and my ‘claim to fame’ while there, was playing Titania, at the age of 8 or 9, in 'Midsummer Night’s Dream'.

Standard High School education folowed where I was usually the one staring out of the window or ‘etching’ horses on my desk - GCE O levels & RSAs, both of which included art - winning a place to Art College - followed by a variety of creative jobs ranging from bespoke picture framing to interior design.

I have attended both formal and informal art courses over the subsequent years. I have drawn and painted for as long as I can remember, although I will admit that this was sometimes sporadic while my children were young. A variety of commissions have been fulfilled using oils, watercolours or pastels andwork has been exhibited and sold at numerous exhibitions. Creative writing workshops and yoga classes, when time allowed, have been two of the ways I use to both stimulate and clear my brain. I first became interested in the potential of computers when I bought my eldest son his first one when he was about thirteen.

Eventually a Pentium was purchased and I began to experiment with graphics in Corel Draw and Photopaint. This interested me enough to want to explore the wonders of the Macintosh so I 'persuaded' my local printers to give me a job in their pre-press department - I have been hooked ever since and this led directly to my purchase of a Macintosh G4 as soon as they became available. Unfortunately for the PC this has meant that it has been demoted to second fiddle.
