I was born in East London in 1953 and I came from a large family. I am self taught, and most of my work is from my imagination rather than copying things. I prefer to paint in Acrylic although I do use Oils, and I also love to work with wood and clay. I love photography and some of my original art work has been digitally changed to give it a unique look. I paint for pleasure and I enjoy people enjoying my art work.
