At school my art teacher always criticised my choice of colours and it was not until many years later when I saw an exhibition of the Fauvist Art Group that I realised there were other people who thought like me! For several years I attended leisure classes with local artist and teacher Alison Head who encouraged me to have confidence in my art.

My favourite way of working is to sketch and photograph with BAS outdoor summer sketching and then spend the winter simplifying and adapting in a variety of media with help and encouragement of Bromham Baptists Art group.

The photo attached was produced in this way, one based on Bromham park.

My favourite artists are Howard Hodgkin, David Hockney, Barbara Rae and Philip Sutton but I also get ideas and inspirations from attending art exhibitions of all types.
