Since I was a child I have had a penchant for painting. At school I studied for my GCE and attended various classes for life drawing and oil painting. After spending most of my working life as a draughtswoman, I retired and took up watercolour painting which I much prefer over any other medium. I have a passion for nature, particularly flowers which I like to paint in a very loose style. I also like painting landscapes and I am always taking photos for ideas for paintings.
