I have always been fascinated by animals and my first memory of drawing is of trying to copy a portrait of parrot when I was about 6 , since then I have never really stopped , although I first started painting in oils I never really felt comfortable with them, then I tried watercolour and loved them and the fine detail you can achieve with an almost dry brush .I have now started using acrylics and like being able to achieve large scale subjects , I try to vary my subjects but I always seem to return to an animal or bird based theme.
