Originally from the South of England but now living in Melbourne, Australia. I took up graphite drawing at the ripe old age of 42, after a long hiatus of 25 years. I did achieve an O’level in art, whilst at school, and had hoped to go to art college. However, my family and I emigrated here to Australia and art college was forgotten about!! I didn’t pick up a pencil again until 3 years ago. Just wish I had picked up that pencil a long time ago!
