I started drawing just a few years ago after being inspired by a family friend. I did not have any previous experience at all and felt I needed some structured tuition. Evening classes seemed too much like school so I decided on distance learning. I enrolled on the London Art College, Coloured Pencil and Drawing Course followed by Pet Portraits both with Melanie Phillips. I thoroughly recommend them both.
Drawing pets and wildlife is where my heart lies and I have recently sold some pictures at our local church exhibition. I am currently drawing pets for friends and family.
I draw every spare moment I can but it is never enough time. When you work it is not always easy. The housework has suffered but I am afraid there is no contest!
I live happily in Ash near Canterbury, Kent with my lovely husband Chris and Lucy our adorable little black Shih Tzu.
