Even at the young age of three I spent a lot of my time drawing and really loved it. I always knew that I wanted to have a career in art. When I finished school I applied and got accepted at art college in Croydon, England. Somehow when I had finished my training the lure of travelling seemed to take over and before I knew it the last thing I ever did was paint. Some twenty five years later I started to take art classes again and immediately the world of art opened up to me with all the excitement of painting and drawing and the satisfaction of accomplishment and I really had to wonder why I had left it for so long. The incredible thing was that during those years when I no longer painted I must have still been mentally learning because when I finally did pick up a paint brush I had improved a thousand fold.
For the past five years I have really enjoyed teaching in all the three mediums of Watercolour, Acrylic and Oil. Many of my students have been with me since the beginning and it is very satisfying to see them grow and improve their painting skills. I really enjoy teaching and will go that extra mile to make sure that my students understand the techniques and theory of painting and to help them produce a painting that they can be very proud of. I have also ventured into some workshops, which have been lots of fun.
I try and paint every day even if only for a short while. I think everyone can always learn and get better so the more you practice the better you will get. Although I am a dedicated painter I really do enjoy every moment and would be totally lost if art were not in my life I love to paint, it creates an inner satisfaction and a certain calm that nothing else seems to give me. I prefer to paint in the solitude of my studio listening to classical music. I paint all subjects but seem to have a fondness for flowers
I feel so fortunate to have art back in my life again and to have met so many people within the art world. At the moment I am busy writing articles for various magazines but I have lots of ideas and aspirations for the new year and I am determined to go forward land enjoy every minute. Thank you to my family and friends and everyone who has helped me on this incredible journey.
