A little bit about me
I left college winning Student of the Year Award, and I was also delighted to have been presented with the prestigious Malcolm Kendal Award in recognition of my Art. The following year I went on to win a further award, was short-listed in a competition to exhibit in a Gallery on London's Cork Street, and again in 2006 at the Candid Galleries in Islington, London so it really has been an exciting time!
I just love painting! Trees are my favourite subject currently, but I also enjoy abstracts, and portraits are a great challenge too . Along the painting journey what has become clear to me is that my best paintings are the ones that I am most passionate about creating, and that passion and enthusiasm has to be present now in every painting I create. I hope that is evident.
Taking the step into the art world for me has been overwhelming, it has been a real personal & emotional discovery and I only hope that I can continue to paint for as long as I possibly can. Without painting and all that is art to me I would be lost and I can't begin to imagine the feeling of it not being there!
