I have always been keen in art and like many other artists I began drawing and painting at school. On leaving school in 1976 I started work as an apprentice joiner which is where I developed an interest in woodcarving, woodturning and general carpentry.
I had to retire from work due to ill health in 2004 and at the time found it very difficult to do most things so I turned to water colour painting which at the time was a totally new medium to me having only painted in oils previously. Once I had mastered water colour painting I had the idea of making and painting greetings cards.
Although due to my ill health I am still restricted to the amount of time I'm able to stand or sit in one position I am now able to enjoy a limited amount of time painting, card making, woodcarving, woodturning and general cabinet making including clocks, toys and jewellery boxes.
I will never make a fortune out of my hobby but I do get a tremendous amount of satisfaction out of creating artwork and if others enjoy viewing my site then I have achieved my goal.
