In the late 1990’s I joined an adult evening class ‘Painting and drawing for fun’ this was followed up with more evening classes where I discovered a love for portraiture and life drawing. I have being a member of Huddersfield Art Society for about 16 years ago and I’m an active member of the society’s Portrait Group. Last year I joined Lindley Art Group. Of late due to lockdown restrictions I’m developing a greater liking for outdoor painting but also joined in Sky Arts Portrait of the Week online. I dabble in pencil, watercolour, pastel and more lately water soluble oils but my greatest love is acrylic.
