to I was born and raised in Birmingham but have lived in rural Oxfordshire for the past 18 years.
I have always been interested in art but did not really focus on it properly. However, over the past 12 months or so, I have realised how much I really do enjoy it and have been painting in earnest!
I love drawing animals and, in particular, cats but have dabbled in a lot of subjects.
I like pastel on velour but have recently got back into watercolour and more recently into pen and ink...its good to keep experimenting!
When I paint I always put some rock music on first; normally something guitar based or a touch of Pink Floyd if I don't feel like anything too heavy!
This is one example of my work process - start to finish....
