I am retired but have painted all my life. I attended Wolverhampton Art College in the late sixties but never had a career in art. In the later years of my career I worked in Mental Health gaining an MBE for my contributions. My work is colourful and vibrant and I paint objects and scenes that are personal to me. I do manage to sell my work but I prefer others to do it on my behalf - I am not a very ‘pushy’ person. My work is often commended on ‘Painters Online and Leisure Artists Magazine’ and provided an article for them last year.
