I enjoyed art at school so a few years ago I thought I would give it a go. I am mostly interested in portraits and would like to focus more on figures and groups. I have always liked British artists like Stanley Spencer and Lucian Freud, but at the moment my favorite artist is Manet because of the colours he used, From childhood I remember being amazed at the process by which an artist creates an image. It still seems magical to me.
