self taught, figurative, major themes dance, horses & other animals,women, nudes. Best critique “you know you’re getting better” last year my mum.
Art is art, any method, media or medium or process is valid (well maybe not metalic nudes on black velvet or dogs playing poker) David Hockney embraces his Ipad paint app & emails creations to friends. Like to be on that mailing list.
Motto: Remember the best remedy for anti-aging is death, Burgundy before Botox

    I like these charcoal drawings of grasses. Very interesting lines!

  • Thank you so much – I’m enjoying getting back to charcoal after so many years away from it, I tend to get totally messy and dirty – but that must be half the fun :-)
