Having survived a stroke in 1998, at the age of 39, I have found great solace in expressing myself creatively since rediscovering my passion for Art. I believe I have a unique take on the world, as an Aphasia patient with a background in Art. I attended West Sussex college of design in 1979, where I studied Art and went on to complete my Bachelors degree at Brighton Polytechnic in 1983. This led to a career in teaching both Art and Photography at a higher education level. My current work is collage using eggshells and other materials, which are very labour intensive as I only have use of my left hand. My personal strength is choosing colours that blend together to form warm and vibrant pieces that reflect my perception of the world.
