In 1976 we lived
in Singapore and travelled with our three small sons around Malaysia .
born and brought up in London and came to Cambridge when I was 18,
where I trained as a French and English teacher at Homerton College.
After teaching in India and Pakistan in 1968 and 1969, I returned
to Cambridge to bring up my three sons.
On our return,
I worked from 1978 until 1995 with minority ethnic and refugee families
for the Cambridgeshire County Council Education Department.
In 1996 I decided to change direction in life and started teaching English
as a Foreign Language in private language schools.
It was at this point that I began stone-carving after being fired up by
a visit to Zimbabwe in 1996, where I encountered Shona stone-carvers creating
beautiful and moving three dimensional images.
Since that time stone-carving has become an integral and absorbing part
of my life.
I work in Verdite, Alabaster, Soapstone and Limestone. What I love about
carving is the vital surge of energy I feel when my ideas find expression
within the stone. Expressing my feelings is what motivates me to continue
with a piece of carving.
