My favourite subjects are portraits, but I also have a keen interest in nature and enjoy painting wildlife, flowers and still life. I would always choose to work from life rather than photographs and have recently spent time painting with Plein-air groups which is very enjoyable. For many years I have painted in oils and studied with the Open College of Arts. I continue to have a thirst for knowledge and have decided to dip my toe into the tricky world of watercolour. My plan is to immerse myself in the medium for the next year, so watch this space!
