We are pleased to have Ceri as a Lead Tutor here at Higham. Her depth of knowledge about artists and styles is exceptional and filters through to her courses. Not only that, but she is a stunning artist in her own right and, as evidenced by those who know her, a generous and lovely person – ideal for an influential role at Higham.

‘For many years I have been working on a recurring theme, that of the figure in a mainly urban environment. I am interested in creating a sense of place and sometimes a sense of separateness. My work has been developed from preparatory sketches, photographs and memories’. CA
