I'm an amateur artist. not entirely self-taught as I attended portrait classes for some years. There I learned how to look carefully. There's not much opportunity for posed portraiture now, but as an avid observer and sketcher I try to capture moments, movements, postures , scenery, atmospheres wherever I happen to be; using whatever I have with me; moleskin pad, fine liner, sketch pen, coloured pencils. I guess this makes me more a sketcher than a finished product artist
