I joined Lewisham Arthouse in 1991, and the development of my work has increased over the years, as I continue to teach in and outside of my studio space with many of my students returning on a regular basis. My qualifications include: * BA (HONS) Art and Design, Grays School of Art, Aberdeen, 1984 * C&G Teachers' Certificate in Further and Adult Education, 1995 * Canterbury Christchurch Certificate in Education, 2000
