After studying graphics for three years, honor worked in advertising and later studied ceramics at Richmond followed by an Open University course in glaze composition.
She went on to teach in further and higher education at the same time as running a ceramics business. In the 1990s she concentrated on sculpture, developing skills, exploring materials and producing works for public commissions in clay, bronze, carved stone and resin.
Painting has been constant throughout the years, exhibiting in solo and joint shows. Works on canvas began with figurative oils, but gradually became abstracts, now using acrylic; both forms of painting seem to be merging. In 2000 honor enjoyed returning to study, with a postgraduate course at Norwich School of Art and Design.
