After completing my fine art degree, and PGCE in art and design. I entered a long career as an art teacher. In recent years it has become a clear ambition to further develop my own creative practice and return to study an MA in fine art.
When I started the MA course I was a printmaking specialist, creating landscape etchings and exhibiting at; Warrington Art Gallery, Home Manchester, Creative Recycling Gallery Manchester and Blyth Gallery London. The MA has opened up many creative possibilities; to work on a larger scale, using mixed media combined with print, also allowing a connection with my meditation practice to inform my art-making. I wish to continue to develop as a professional artist and work with institutions offering meditation and creativity workshops.
