On retiring I took up art and have been painting now for nearly ten years.
Having had no formal training I have attended several excellent adult education classes.
My work is extensively in watercolours and having had a life-long interest in natural history, I initially began work in Botanical Illustration.
However more recently I have been painting birds in a similar detailed style.
The flowers are painted from the live plants, but birds are not so accommodating.
I love the delicacy in colour and form that can be achieved only with watercolour paint.
Prints and cards are also available for sale from my original paintings.
