I live in North Wales. I have not taken any formal art training, but started painting with pastels in 2011.
I paint animals, my inspiration coming from my love of both wild and domestic animals.
I sold 2 paintings at a national exhibition of wildlife in 2016 and I have also run some beginners workshops in pastels. I also take commissions of pets.
My ambition is to improve year on year as an artist as I develop my skills.
