British, born in Somerset, at school in Derbyshire, Art college in Leicester, six years in adult education, painting and pottery, left for Norway and have lived here ever since, publishing two books with my friend, one on Norway in English, and one on Andalusia in Norwegian, also many articles in magazines on travel and art, specially prehistoric art. Fabric Printing and National Diploma of Design, NDD. Ran a Pottery, painting, mostly water colours, paper sculpture, painting on silk, writing and recently poetry, photography and creative photography. Played the violin and piano. Fenced for my county. On writing, I found hidden treasure chests deep in my subconscious mind that I could plunder, and that sent me into ecstasies of excitement, and this elation poured out in the form of prose or poetry. For me it isn't a calling, it is like breathing, a part of my existence expressing itself.
