About me

I am a London based artist and printmaker.  In the day I teach Business English in the corporate sector.  On my days off I do printmaking, drawing and digital imaging.  I am learning the piano and currently doing an online course in Ancient History: Star Carr a Mesolithic site in Yorkshire

Exhibitions:  It’s a long time since I exhibited prints.    However, last year 2018, I exhibited in two exhibitions : one at the Arts Depot in north London and the other in Trowbridge in Wiltshire.

I have exhibited my photography widely both in the UK, France, and Poland.

Background: 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 have taught English in Italy and Greece and travelled overland to India in the 1970s.  My partner and I ran a design business in Greece, two nightclubs in Aghios Nikolaos, Crete and a cafe in Mykonos as well as putting on various exhibitions in Crete.  We designed hotels in Crete and various shops in Athens.  On my return to the UK I went to do a degree in printmaking at Farnham.

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 London Print Studio where I am doing photopolymer prints.

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: the House of Memories, the Picasso ebook, Cafes Around the World; from Your House to Mine – they are still online

My family: I live in Islington with my partner Subs, who is a musician and gardener.  Our little Pip died this year very sadly and I miss him so much, he was my little mate.
