I started painting when I was
a child with my fathers help. He would set us subjects to paint.
I remember painting sunsets
in watercolour. This gave me a
thirst to learn more.
Most of my formal training
was at Adult education Classes with some very good tutors also I joined Hartley
Art Group. Where I was given a lot of encouragement.
I discovered painting
miniatures about six years ago I attended a class with
Alison Griffin VRMS. Since
then I have been accepted as a member of the Society of Limners,
The Hilliard Society. Last
year I was accepted as an Associate member of the Royal society of miniature
painters Sculptors and gravers.
I Exhibit with the Society of
Limners here and in Tasmania, The Hilliard Society, The Royal Miniature Society
& the Florum Exhibition.
I am a member of the Hartley
Art Group and have Exhibited with them in many Exhibitions around Kent.
I find painting very
absorbing, There is still so much to learn from the world around us it is
constantly changing so we will never be short of a subject to paint. I have
tried different media’s from watercolour to pastels. I now paint in acrylics.
