London Art College online Illustrating children's books
I have been painting from a young age with no formal art education I taught myself from reading books and by observing everything around me. In my later years, I successfully completed a course in illustrating children's books. My work is mainly influenced by nature and all its glorious colors, the peace and tranquillity of the countryside and the animals and birds that inhabit our beautiful earth. I never quite know what I am going to paint, it usually depends on the type of mood I am in on the day. On the days that I feel a need to escape for a while, my subject would usually be some exotic land with sunsets and palm-fringed beaches or the peace and quiet of the countryside. I paint in oils, acrylics and mixed media.
A touch of colour can brighten up the greyest day.
