I've been drawing and painting for several years, starting with an introductory watercolour class one holiday and not looking back. I'm a professional associate of The Society for All Artists and am a member of the Brough & Stainmore art group. I continue to develop my skills - there's always something that captures my interest. I enjoy learning - trying new media and techniques then passing that learning onto others. I'm aware that my art journey still has some way to go. As a matter if fact, it will probably never end. I paint & draw using a variety of media, dependant on the subject and effects I want to achieve. I live in Kirkby Stephen, in the beautiful Eden Valley in Cumbria, England - a source of inspiration. I produce artwork because I enjoy it, because I like to experiment with art materials There's something very satisfying about having an idea, taking that blank piece of paper or canvas and turning the idea into a unique piece of art.
