Art has and always will be my main form of release and expression.
I haven’t always been able to paint due to the controls of domestic violence.
Since 2002 I have been able to not only paint, but share my work with the world and over time I have joined many art clubs and forums for critical appraisal.
My favourite media to work in is pastels, for the ability to work in layers to change not only colour tones but depths to get closer to realism. I do tend to play and mix with media adding gels, watercolours and charcoal , occasionally using inks and acrylics.
I have completed many portraits over the years in many different formats and have been commissioned to do cats, dogs and horses. My love of wild cats is my personal preference, mainly lions and tigers.
