Painting is in my blood; both my mother and grandmother were painters and my first teachers. I grew up in Brixton attending a local grammar school where I became a very undistinguished student in art. My first love was acting and I went off to Manchester University to study Drama. However, when I married and returned to live in Brixton I started drawing and painting again and have never looked back.
