When I grow up, I wanna be a....... by 

Arches Paper

I haven’t been around for a long time for various reasons…It’s been a hectic year art wise and now having two adorable little grandchildren has taken up most of my time.

This painting of my grandson was done when I gave my very first workshop"Portraits in Watercolour" in Dubai, at the Dubai Community Theatre and Arts Centre.

Thanks to the help & support of two very special friends, Patricia & Christopher Southcombe. Patricia, a retired gallery manager, and Christopher a professional artist who set up the workshop, helped to make it such a memorable occasion and gave me so much encouragement and help, believing in me and my work, I will never be able to thank them enough for what they have done for me this past year…

Along with the workshop which was a huge success, I joined two art clubs and have shown my work in various exhibitions….including having two paintings selected for an exhibition in Mayfair, London.

    This is just too goof to be true!! What an expression! Beautiful!! If I had the money I would buy a large print, but I am only a starving photographer. Awesome, awesome work!
