Painting was something I always loved doing from an early age. After O levels I asked my parents if I could go to art college and was told definitely not and was sent out to work. I continued to paint mostly on Sundays. When I met my husband Peter he taught me to paint in oils which I love using. I don’t produce many paintings as I have other interests like knitting, crochet and playing the flute which keep me busy. I have 2 daughters, 2 sons and a step daughter.
