The UK's bestselling learn to paint magazine
I drew and painted anything and everything from an early age.
After studying illustration at The Birmingham College of Art I became an illustrator for The Open University.
However I found producing artwork every day for a living where time was an important factor soon made me lose the inspiration to draw and paint for myself.
Some years later I studied for a Bachelor of Education Degree and took up teaching for the next 22 years.
Now fully retired I finally have the time to develop my painting and drawing skills once again.
I am currently submerging myself in my personal passion for drawing and painting portraiture.
