I was born in 1958. I began my interest in art watching my architect dad working on a design. I drove the poor man mad with my one question., "what ya doin' dad?" this was repeated 4 or 5 times a night. Poor dad!. I progressed with my art in school. Of course I wasn't meant to be drawing on my essay book....but I beat the poor Nun into submission and was allowed to 'illustrate' my essays. Eventually having driven most of my unfortunate tutors bonkers I have reached this stage in my life that I just paint for the pleasure of it and I only drive myself bonkers, trying to produce something uniquely mine.
