I have been painting for about 30 years. Recently I have been concentrating on watercolours which I started with all those years ago. I like the fluid and fresh appearance of this even though it is so difficult and like to try to keep this look in acrylics, pastels and oil. I love the use of ink with watercolour which I usually apply after finishing the watercolour, quickly picking out shapes. I love doing portraits - mostly in pastel and oil although, occasionally in watercolour. I think life would be dull without the excitement of art.
