I began to paint in watercolours about 20 years ago (self-taught and encouraged by the very dear, late Pamela Anderson); however, gave it up to study for a degree and to train as a teacher in History and English Literature. I have only recently started to paint again, and sat looking at a blank piece of paper for some time in fear that I could no longer paint. Fortunately, my fears proved unwarranted and I am thoroughly enjoying painting once again (rather an understatement!).
The five images in the mini gallery are my new paintings; however, others can be viewed (along with the new) in the Trowbridge Gallery in Castle Cary and the 303 Gallery in Martock (Yandles). Watercolour is my favourite medium although I also enjoy graphite drawing (The Triceratops). Another creative pursuit is handmade, miniature versions of antique furniture (also in The Trowbridge Gallery) following – in a small way, literally – the family tradition, as my grandfather was a cabinet maker in the days of Heal & Son and Gordon Russell (totallyuniqueminiatures.com).
