When I was in school I enjoyed my art classes and my best O Level was my Art, however life came along I my paints got put away. However during a holiday on the beautiful island of Menorca I tried to unsuccessfully capture some of the scenery, so In October 2004 I decided to go attend evening classes and study Watercolour painting under the expert guidance of Rachel Phillips. Within a few weeks I was given enough knowledge to start to produce paintings that no longer had to be confined to the dustbin.
I do enjoy painting “en plair air” where I have adopted a quick pen and ink sketch style so I can capture the scene, this may be in Cornwall, where I am lucky enough to live, or on holiday.
I now have my own Art Studio in my garden, so I am set up to paint whenever I feel inspired, and as it has a wonderful view of Carn Brea, that happens quite frequently!
