I have been drawing and painting on and off since childhood. I have found it difficult to keep up the interest, however, having a break every so often means I am always trying new media and this has helped me to appreciate other people's works, be they amateur or professional. When I paint I tend to work very loose and I am not very meticulous. I find this style of painting suits me. My academic c.v is limited to GCSE A Level and I have no wish to go further, just enjoy this wonderful pastime.
