During this period I was working along-side many emerging artist in Wharf, Wapping at that time. I was employed as a play leader with Camden Council from1982-1992. I worked on art projects with the children, painting murals. Following further teacher training and social http://jump4loves.com/ work jobs, I decided at the millennium that I would devote myself again to painting. To that end I began attending weekly life classes and I had a studio built in the garden of my house in Northwood. Almost all of the art on this web site has been produced post 2000 and since 2006 I have been working part-time at Harrow College.
