My story is very similar to many others. Worked in engineering till retirement from the Jubilee Line Extension in 1995 where I worked as a coordinator. Always being interested in all forms of drawing and painting, I attended Croydon College after retirement where I completed a Foundation Diploma in Fine Art, and was accepted as a degree student by the Wimbledon School of Art in 1998. Did not complete course.
Have had many solo exhibitions at the Fairfield Halls, Croydon and London.

Appeared on Watercolour Challenge circa 1995
Stopped painting about ten years ago for personal reasons.
Re-started painting early in 2017 mainly in watercolour.
