"I wouldn't say that it was the lure of peace from 3 children, a dog, a cat, a rabbit and the husband which sent me scuttling to the attic in search of "studio space", but it certainly helped. After half a lifetime of languishing in a dark drawer, it was time to bring my paintbrushes out of retirement. And so I did. And here I am, paintbrush, cleaning rags and putty rubber at the ready. My pet subject is, well, pets and specifically all things furry, but I also skitter occasionally into buildings and subjects inspired by nature. Of late, I have discovered a love for pen and dipping ink, and will be exhibiting at the Art4Africa exhibition. I very much hope that you enjoy them."
