I have spent all my working life with the NHS and studied the sciences rather than the arts. On retiring I took up art and have been painting now for nearly ten years. Having had no formal training I have attended several excellent adult education classes.
My work is extensively in watercolours and initially I began work in Botanical Illustration, however more recently I have been painting birds in a similar detailed style. The flowers are painted from the live plants,but birds are not so accommodating. I love the delicacy in colour and form that can be achieved only with watercolour paint.
