I became interested in art at the early age of 49, when I was on sick leave from full time employment. I started to draw and then paint as a means of trying to keep my mind occupied whilst I recovered from surgery. I found that I received some very positive comments about my artwork and this gave me confidence to become more adventurous with the mediums that I tried - from pencil drawings, to acrylics, then oils. I like to paint a wide range of subjects. This makes painting more interesting for me and makes it easier for me to find inspiration. However, with my sailing background, I particularly enjoy painting seascapes and have produced a number of pieces, raising a significant amount of money for the RNLI lifeboats.
