I studied at Dudley College of Education in 1966-1969, my subjects were Arts and Crafts and English Lit. My 3 main sides of art were pottery, painting and photography. More recently, I have done evening classes or workshops in pottery and 'Art for Women' to use different media. Also I have done extensive life drawings over the last 30 years. I went to a clay workshop at the Allen Centre for people with mental health problems. I feel the need to express myself creatively to remain sane.
