Apart from a childhood love of drawing, my
earlier years were an art-free zone. I would have been in my twenties
when I first stepped into a gallery. Iíve tried to make up for that
since, visiting galleries and museums wherever I go. I try to
appreciate all forms of visual art, but get drawn more to figurative
I planned that when I retired I would learn
to paint and that it would be my main hobby and am still working on it. Iíve tried a range of media but
keep coming back to watercolour and graphite.
