Who Am I?

I was born in August 1945 at Burnham, in Buckinghamshire,
Grew up in London and was educated at University College School, Hampstead
and St. Martin’s School of Art, from which I graduated with a Dip AD in Fine Art in 1967, (later converted to a BA degree).

Over more than thirty years now I have worked professionally as a gardener:

1974-6 Central Royal Parks, Hyde Park.
1976-81 Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
1981-91 Free-lance gardener, North West London.
1992-2002 Gardener and Estate Manager, The Manor House, Sutton Courtenay, Oxon.
2002-05 Part-time Farm Manager and Gardener, Dorrigo, NSW, Australia.
2006-07 Free-lance part-time gardener, Clifton, Bristol.

In September 2007 I am now settled fully in Kenilworth, Warwickshire and again starting to work as a free-lance.
