I cannot remember a time when I have not had a pencil or paint brush in my hand but always for my own pleasure. I only started selling my pictures in 2017 when I started painting on wood
I use oil paint to give me the flexibility to paint fine detail, highly textured or a mixture of both depending on the animal or bird I am painting. I paint on a variety of woods, all with their own individual character.
My inspiration comes directly from the wood, each image is chosen to complement the piece of wood.
