'Cogbeetle', is all about my passion for art, nature and journeys.
I'm a member of the 'Artists' Collective @ Westbury', studio-artist and Trustee at Westbury Arts Centre in Milton Keynes. I’m very much inspired by the every-changing space I see in natural environments and more built-up urban areas. Recent works include images of the old Victorian Wolverton Works windows. I have a profound respect for nature, for preserving the memory of historical sites and for conservation.
I completed a BA(Hons) in Fine Art and Art History at Birmingham School of Art in 1993 and went on to complete a Masters degree in Art & Design Education at De Montfort University in Leicester in 2001. I am CTLLS (Adult Education teaching) qualified (2007). As well as being and artist, I have worked and taught in Higher and Further education for most of my career; in distance learning, online learning and adult education.
