I worked throughout the years of my professional life in the teaching of art and design, firstly in Further Education and later in Higher Education. For many years I was part of the team running the Graphics Media Communication degree in the Bradford School of Art and then during the last fours years of my career, I managed the full range of arts and media degrees and masters programmes within the Art School.
Since retiring in 2009 from my career in art and design education, I have devote much of my time to engaging with my own artwork. To begin with, I concentrating on life drawing and through this an interest in portraiture emerged. More recently I have been looking to take this further by developing skills in oil painting and the work displayed here are some of the results of that effort.
