Subject: Drawing Techniques
I have been making art since I was seven – when I made my first sculpture of The Fates.
My father was a Music and Classics teacher, and bedtime stories told from Greek myths had a lifelong influence on my creative work.
Between 1979 and 2000 I worked at Wakefield College, teaching Drawing and Textiles; and Leeds Metropolitan University, writing and delivering contextual studies programmes on Symbolism, Human Perception & Colour, Art & Language, and Nature & Culture.
Since 2001 I have been working for Bristol Adult Learning teaching Textiles, and now, Drawing Techniques. It is a great pleasure to see people gain confidence, develop their drawing skills, and have a laugh.
