My Story

I have always enjoyed art and drawing, in particular, has been a passion and interest of mine since I was a young boy. I have been drawing as a student or teacher for over forty years. I have spent countless hours drawing and teaching others how to draw.

How I have Developed My Drawing skills

Like many children my age, I was drawn to sketching at a young age and soon became aware that I processed an ability to draw to a certain level. 

Encouraged by many peers, I focused on developing my drawing skills at high school, college, and university where I gain a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education.

Finally, I trained as an art teacher and have been teaching art and design for 23 years in the UK.
