From the artist:
Art was very much part of my upbringing, spending a great deal of time in art galleries. My father, an accomplished artist/art college lecture sparked an interest in me. It wasn’t until the death of my partner of 34 years that I found painting to be a very therapeutic activity. I am particularly interested in portraiture and keep aiming to create a likeness but more importantly would like to be able to show the essence of a person.
