Drawing and painting have always been of great importance in my life since a small child. I have attended many evening classes and workshops in all media. I can’t say I am self taught, rather taught by many. At the moment I am mainly interested in plein air painting in oils and portrait painting. I attend Hesketh Hubbard at the Mall Galleries painting the life model or a portrait most weeks. Also a member of several local art groups and societies exhibiting with them as well as the Croydon Art Society.
