I am a Landscape painter and printmaker, and have been exhibiting and selling my works of art as a full time artist for over thirty years mainly in London. Also had works published in books and magazines.
I attended "Ravensbourne College of Art and Design"  in the late 1970's beginning with studies in textile design, which included life drawing classes and photography. The course although inspiring on many levels created more of an interest in painting and drawing rather than design, which led me to seek mentors and courses whilst holding down other jobs and raising a family.  These included, landscape painting and life drawing at Sidcup Art Center and also Hampstead School of Art under artist and tutor David Cuthbert and Printmaking with Theresa Pateman [who is part of the Southbank Printmakers].  My main mentor however, has to be my mother, artist and tutor, Cristiana Angelini who always encouraged good drawing skills as the foundation to all good art.
