I was an Art Teacher and have constantly attended lessons, art schools and workshops to gain more knowledge including a painting holiday in France. I love to keep learning and have sold many paintings in Art Society Exhibitions and with other Artists. I ran a small painting group and a series of beginners art lessons, unfortunately halted due to Covid. My paintings are very eclectic and include portraits, landscapes and still life. I like the challenge of new ideas and techniques. My paintings shown here demonstrate works with palette knife, figures in landscape, and still life all using the different media of pastels, watercolour and oils. It is a joy to paint and if my paintings give joy, I am successful.
