I am completely self taught and have been painting since childhood.

To begin with, I started seriously painting in watercolours with pen and ink, and have had several greetings cards printed by the Medici Society in London. Since then I have completed comissions as a freelance artist creating, cards, children's book illustraions etc,over the years.

Although I enjoy all this, I "took up" oil painting seriously, and exibited in mixed and solo exhibions starting in the 1970's. As much as I like oils and watercolours, I have experimented with egg tempera, mixed media, and painting on ceramics.

I even joined the British Egg Tempera Society for a while and exibited with them, but decided that egg tempera took far too much preparation and time!

I like painting anything that inspires me. I love nature and painting animals , people and faces.
