My background is Catering and Teaching. I have a BEd and MEd both in Education (Special Educational Needs). I've been painting for 4 years with no lessons or any formal training. I work with oils, watercolors and acrylics working mostly in abstract. I also draw birds and animals using pencil and charcoal. I also make shadow boxes and art filled glass coasters. I have attended and shown my art at over 12 shows this year. My work is in restaurants, properties and hair dressing salon within the local area. I have sold over 200 paintings in 4 years. My work is inspired by what I see and feel. There is no style or artist that I follow. In fact I do not really know any famous artist or their work. I just paint what I want and what feel is right.
