Introduction I am currently studying for General Illustration BA, Hons at Swansea Metropolitan University. I have previously lived and worked abroad. Teaching English, French, Art and General Science in Thailand. I also wrote and taught freelance courses for Nokia and Bank of Bangkok while living in Thailand. I worked at Coca-Cola/Schweppes and Pepsi/Britvic Soft drinks as a computer operator for years, where I also wrote procedural manuals and manuals to explain what our programs actually did. I also worked and trained in the customer service industries. I have exhibited both in Wales and Thailand and have sold my work to clients in Japan, U.S.A, Maldives and of course here at home. My passions artistically would lean into Art Nouveau especially Klimt and Mucha. Favourite artists are Salvador Dali, Patrick Woodroffe, Edward Hopper and Roger Dean.
