One of my earliest memories is of my two grandmothers bringing me some coloured crayons
and paper one rainy day in Aberdeen -
At primary school I was always encouraged to enter art competitions and won several prizes so it was a given that at High School I would continue to enjoy art under the expert tutelage of Mr Batchelor our fun, eccentric and flamboyant Barbadian Head of Art.

Since then I have worked as a Graphic Designer and along with raising a family found
