    Worked as textile designer- in Britain & abroad - my work has strong design content with a love for pattern, bright colours & hand drawn lettering.
    I was a Primary & Secondary school art specialist teaching Art & Design for 15 years in Scotland & England but now I am painting full time.
     I draw the noodles cartoon strip &  have written 9 'Diary of a Scotty-Dog!' cartoon novels.
