Apart from meal breaks, I have been painting more or less non-stop since my early teens. After graduating from the Central School of Art and Design in London, I taught art and worked as an artist and illustrator in the UK, then moved to Japan in the mid-70s where I have worked as an English teacher and EFL textbook author and illustrator. I taught general and art and design-related English at Tama Art University for 20 years and retired in 2014. My work is mainly abstract, in acrylics and oils, and I also make woodblock prints.
