I was born and grew up in Warwickshire but now live in Shropshire. I have always been interested in painting and drawing , even from a very young age I would save my pocket money to buy pencils and brushes. I studied fine art after leaving school, but then decided to train as a primary school teacher, still painting and drawing in what little spare time I could find. I am now painting full time, I paint in Oils ,sometimes in Acrylics, and am fascinated by the natural world around us and the changing light.I like to draw and sketch outside whenever possible, but it is often more practical to make sketches and photographs and complete the painting in the studio. I have had paintings selected for exhibition in many art galleries, including The Kings Place Gallery, London; Weston Park Gallery, Staffordshire; The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists Gallery, Birmingham; The Shirehall Gallery, Stafford; Keele University Gallery, Keele; The Octagon Centre, Sheffield; and The Williamson Art Gallery, Birkenhead.

Pleasing on the eye. Nice tones, very soothing. Signature added afterwards was a bit bold, would have been better if painted on.Submitted by Anne Elizabeth P 12/03/2014
