I've been an artist since I was about 9 years old, mostly painting portraits in oils, pastels, charcoal and later, acrylics. I studied Fine arts at University and pursued private art courses from time to time. I've worked other jobs but always plan paintings in my head while I'm working them. Colour is my greatest fascination and challenge at the same time. I love sunlight and am focusing on incorporating it into my current work. When I paint, I try to keep an eye on my dogs as they can get into all sorts of stuff when they see I'm not looking! I work full time at one of those "non art" jobs so no daily paintings at the moment but I'm working on upping production. Stay tuned and come back for a visit to see what new paintings I've added.
