I am a London based artist and printmaker. My day job is teaching English in a language school and Business English at home in London.
March 2018: I am currently learning to play the flute which I bought last Christmas and have been putting off – but I have finally started my lessons online with gobando.com and later on I will book some one to one lessons.
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.
Artistic Processes: I like mixing various processes, creating artists books and researching London history. I have recently become an open access member at East London Printmakers and submitted some work to the Teesside Print Exhibition – my first drypoint in many years, part of a series on My Family Album:
I used to promote artists books online at zybooks for 10 years and showcased the work of over 100 artists from around the world. I started another six online collaborative global art projects too.
My family: I live in Islington with my partner Subs, who is a musician and gardener and our little cat, Pip who loves climbing trees and catching mice, well he did until he got diabetes, now he’s quite fat and can’t climb trees any more, poor little Pip.
