I have always had a passion for art from a very young age. I once entered an art competition from a national newspaper and to my amazement I won. The prize was a correspondence course with an art school in America and included all the art reference books which would of cost a fortune, sadly due to work commitments and working away from home I was unable to complete the course. My art was put on the back burner. I have now retired and with more time on my hands I'm able to enjoy my passion for art once again. I am now a member of an art club and enjoy socialising with other artist. My main media is water colour, but I also dabble with acrylic. I enjoy animal portraits, birds, flowers, landscapes, seascapes and urban sketching.
