Who I am
Born in South Wales, UK
Lives & works in The Algarve, Portugal
My work is varied and eclectic. My favourite medium is oils although I love the spontaneity of small pen and wash sketches. My easel and paints go with me everywhere - in the boot of the car or in my suitcase. I'm drawn (parden the pun) to the unusual, the ironic and the nostalgic, which some may mistakingly think makes me a rather melancholy person.
My second love is bringing out the wonderful gift of creativity in others via my art classes. Nothing gives me more of a rush when one of my students starts selling their own work.
