I have loved to paint since I was a young child and I paint mostly in water colour and oils. I am a life member of Huddersfield Art Society and have for many years enjoyed attending the Portrait Group. My exhibition paintings have all being done this year during lockdown using my experiences from the past. The child and goldfish painting was inspired by a trip to HRI and I promised myself I would paint it and I’m happy I’ve achieved my goal. The trouble is I’m always spotting another experience or subject I feel I just have to paint - so I don’t think I’ll ever stop wanting to paint.
