After completing my degree in Graphic design at Leicester polytechnic in 1983 I worked in London as a freelance illustrator and commercial artist. A career that lasted 30 years. I now live in Shropshire and rent studio space at Participate Artspace in Shrewsbury. Where I can concentrate on my own projects, which are now more sculptural in nature. Currently I am interested in the concept of recycling waste. In this case corrugated cardboard. Using it as raw material to create decorative pieces that relate to objects normally made of clay or wood.
