I left school at 15 and went straight to art college in Worthing, West Sussex. After three years my family moved to Norfolk and I spent two years at Great Yarmouth College of Art. National Service called me for two years in Cyprus after which I studied as one year post graduate at the London College of Printing. I spent ten years in London advertising and design agencies and then a career change to teaching typography at Great Yarmouth College of Art and Design and Norwich School of Art. On my retirement I began to paint and my work now follows my love of structure and colour.
