I painting as a child and it became such an enjoyable pastime, I studied art at school. I enjoy many kinds and types of art. My favourite artist being, of course, Van Gogh, and the pre Raphaelite brotherhood, Monet, Manet, Emil Pissamo, not forgetting my good friend Jonathan Shearer. I have not had work shown and hope that this will be a good an encouraging push for me, I am lazy. I will draw anything I can, and move often to things that are beyond me. I love thick black charcoal, and rubber the most. I am not so good at painting, I like to use my fingers which is messy and I am also a goldsmith and jeweller but don’t practice it anymore.
