I was creative from a young age, if there was paper and a pencil laying around I would be scribbling on it, or making something out of boxes, and as I grew Art become my favourite subject at school, though once I left school I pursued other hobbies, mainly horse riding, as long as I can remember Ive always been an animal lover, always wanting to go and 'stroke the dog ' or pleading with my parents every Christmas for a pony, though the dream of owning my own horse never came until I was in my mid 20's. I now own one Appaloosa horse named Harley, sadly I lost his mum Freckles in November 2018, after 20 years together. I also have 3 dogs, Honey a little heinz57 who was rescued off the streets as a pup, Misty a blue merle Shetland Sheepdog and her daughter a tri coloured sheltie called Brockley
I think my love for animals is what inspired me to draw and paint them, I started out by painting family and friends pets, and it snowballed from there, then I thought I would try my hand at drawing my daughter, so then started drawing people portraits, and at a later date I was asked to paint a Motorcycle, and so another string was added to my bow.
I now am quite willing to paint or draw most subjects and I work mostly in pastels and graphite.
