The Artist

I’ve added all the standard ‘About Me’ sections below but it doesn’t reveal the real me. I have no art degree, no professional training so I can’t shout that from the roof tops but I’m pretty quirky, lively and bubbly. I love telling people about my artwork, how I create it and why I do it plus I love showing people my self taught techniques which are very simple. I’ve always been a creator, even as a child, however my efforts were just making a mess but it sowed the seeds for what was to come, why not read about how I became an animal portrait artist. I am a keen member of the Herefordshire Guild of Craftsmen, they can hear me coming a mile away and always know when I’m in the building, they frequently tell me I’m loud and bubbly, but that’s just me! If you want to learn more about me, why not subscribe to my blog where I share more behind the scenes information and you can find out more about me, the artist. More importantly than the art though I’m animal mad, most of mine are second hand and rejects, meet my dogs and visit my smallholding where nothing leaves, they all die of old age and enjoy a wonderful life. Our geese are failed Christmas dinners! So if you want to learn more about me, why not subscribe to my blog where I share more behind the scenes information and you can find out more about me, the artist.

Eco Friendly as possible! Going green!!!

So the environment is in need of our help. It’s changing rapidly, and not always for the better.

So how did it all begin?

I’ve been asked many times how I started painting pets. It’s not something you consider when choosing a future career!

News Flash and a new job for me

So the news is I am now a full time pet portrait artist. After fifteen action packed years with the Forestry Commission.
