About Me

After a Fine Art (Sculpture) degree at Reading University and an Art Teachers' Certificate at Hornsey College of Art, I taught sculpture at Holland Park School, joined the Cockpit Arts Workshop in Marylebone, and then the Education Department at the National Portrait Gallery,while developing my art practice and exhibiting. In 1980, I took up an academic post in the Department of Museum Studies University of Leicester, becoming Head of Department, Professor and Director of the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries (RCMG).

Since moving to Devon in 2006 I have been able to return to my sculpture and am now very absorbed in seeing where that goes! I am an exhibiting member of Westward Ho! and Bideford Art Society, a member of Westcountry Potters Association, and Devon Artists Network. I was awarded Second Prize in the South West Academy for Fine and Applied Art (SWAc) Open Exhibition 2013 for one of my small female porcelain figures (Ice Age Matron 2). I exhibited at Gloss Gallery in Exeter until it closed in early 2015, and have work at Portland Gallery in Ilfracombe and West Down Sculpture Gardens, Bradworthy. I was Chair of Appledore Arts from 2011-2013 and am currently Chair of North Devon Arts.
