“I work in many mediums acrylic/ watercolour/ pencil/ pastel / pen and ink.
I don’t like being called a self taught artist as I’ve had many great many teachers in local evening classes around Charnwood, all of which helped me to achieve my current standard of work, to whom I’m very grateful. I have also had a vast amount of help just from being a member of a club the feedback, comradeship, support and assistance, has improved my work in leaps and bounds. I don’t paint for sale as I’m now happily retired, so my subjects are what I like to paint which gives me a great freedom, if I sell anything that is just a bonus. I have sold more works than Van Gough did in his lifetime (1) which always gives me a warm feeling!”
