My CV

Lynda Rosemarie Stevens

After graduating, entering the workforce proved to be difficult, but I did continue educating myself in Art, as well as through community jobs that included designing placards for the community as well as designing booklets and toys to be used as educational aids in schools. From the late 80’s to Early 90’s I also taught part-time courses in popular subjects at both Warwick University and Coventry University
