I went to Lancaster & Morecambe College of Art & Design and spent four happy years learning many arts disciplines, including photography, silk screen printing, design and illustration. It was the search for employment at the end of college which took me to South Yorkshire where I built my career as head of Graphic Design at Sheffield College. Many of you will know Jane, my daughter and business partner at The Rabbit Patch better than me, but you’ll see my work regularly as I’m the designer and photographer with the Visit Fylde Coast websites. I’ve always painted and drawn – architecture, houses and buildings have always been my thing, but I enjoy working with an eclectic range of subjects. Now instead of completing an illustration and putting it in a folio we’re making them available for people to enjoy through the Seaside Emporium. Or at least prints are available because Jane is saving the originals for a rainy day!
