I have been painting and drawing since childhood and have over 20 years experience working with watercolour. Pen and ink is also a favourite medium and I have recently started using coloured pencil, pastels and acrylic.

My passion for painting and drawing is only surpassed by my love of animals, especially the local wildlife.

I can frequently be found prowling the countryside in search of local wildlife to inspire myself.

I also enjoy crafting. I have tried many crafts over the years, from sewing to sculpting and have learned a great deal from people in online groups. Their generosity in sharing their knowledge is shown in every swap and chat I have had.
