I trained as a fashion designer with the aim to combine a fascination for drawing with the exploration of the three-dimensional potential of the human figure.  
After some time working as a free-lancer for sports wear, I moved into teaching Drawing and working as an Illustrator. 
From 1991 to 2008 I worked as a tutor in Further Education (in Germany and UK), teaching a range of topics within the field of Art & Design.
Since 2008 I have been focussing my arts practise exclusively onto Fine Art.
Currently I am undertaking studies as part of a Master's degree at the University of Chester.
