First things first, how did you get started as an artist?
I’ve lived in Somerset for forty-two years and have worked in a variety of jobs including as a glass engraver and a sign writer. I’ve always been creative and have spent a lot of time at local evening classes doing ceramics and jewellery making.
I was knocked off my bicycle on the way home from work one day and that changed my life. As I lay in the road I thought what have I done with my life? It was after that time that I decided to return to education and in 2005 did an Access Course at Yeovil College.
