I am a retired UK pension manager, who has been painting for about 20 years, initially in my spare time and most days since retiring. I would describe my style as eclectic as I like to change style depending on the subject matter and the mood that I am in. I generally work in oils but also use mixed media and watercolour from time to time. I completed an art foundation course in the mid 90s and completed a number of art courses. I have been, taking lessons from a professional artist for the last six years (and continue to do so). I live in Spain (Moraira, Costa Blanca), and am in the process of converting a space in my house into a new studio.
