...trying to create a little magic with oil paint...
My passion is painting. Intrigued by faces, whether people or animals, my first joy was painting dogs and that is still my favourite subject. As I have gained more experience, portraiture has become my new challenge. I am excited by colour, and mood as well as subject.
Self-taught, I am grateful to the many artist-teachers who share their expertise so generously on the internet.
My inspiration comes from the world around me and the work of many realist painters .
Special mention must be made of my dog, Bilbo Baggins, who was my first model and continues to be my Muse.
I paint in oils, sometimes other media.
Small paintings are available to purchase from Daily Paintworks or directly from me.
