With an amateur watercolourist mother who also sculpted and a hobby and a cartoonist father, it was written in the stars that I would try and become an artist as well. Taking up brushes after my retirement some years ago was a logical outcome.
Since those early days I have attended classes and workshops with superb artists all of whom have contributed immensely to my understanding of my preferred medium which is oil. I love the painting process and often dream about it. As portraiture is my love, I was very proud to receive the SASA Best Oil Award in 2017 for a portrait.
