About me

This blog is now a medley of things.  I am currently doing an online printmaking course and also doing bookbinding at Richmond Art College.  I am also a member of meetup.com and will be doing some ceramics near my home in Archway.  Ceramics is a passion of mine but regular workshops and classes are now too expensive.

I originally trained in design, running a design practice in Greece with a partner for five years. I did a degree in Printmaking at Farnham and an MA Photography course in London.  I have taught art and design, printmaking, IT, web design, digital imaging, textiles in London schools, colleges and unis.

Travel:  I have traveled widely from the US to India.  In India we built and ran a restaurant in Poona. I ran a creche in San Francisco and have taught English all over Europe. My partner and I ran a design business in Athens and Crete, building hotels, shops and restaurants for five years.

Artistic Processes: I like mixing various processes, creating artists books and researching London history.

I used to promote artists books online at zybooks for 10 years and showcased the work of over 100 artists from around the world.
