I have been interested in art on and off throughout my life.

When I retired I attended Southport College for two years, studying art and design and I achieved the Foundation Certificate.  I then spent many years as a member of the Liver Sketching Club based in Liverpool.

In 2013, I suffered a stroke and had to reconsider my artistic activities as I could no longer use my right hand. I joined Conquest Art Formby where I am developing pen and coloured pencil drawing with my left hand. I hope to progress to other mediums, e.g. watercolours in due course.
