On retiring from pharmacy in 2000 at the age of 60. I happened to meet Estelle Hartley. When I asked her what she did she said, "I teach art". I had never ever considered art or painting, but a still small voice in my mind said, "DO IT!". So to my surprise I said, "I think I would like to do that."
Two weeks later I started the most exciting (apart from my marriage) adventure in my life. I maintain that that inner voice was a prompting from above and I am grateful.
Because of that I try to help and encourage "new" artists.
I am also blessed to be able to bring joy to folk who view my art and have it hanging in their homes.
I do teach as well and find that one learns so much from your students. Learning never stops.
I am blessed with a wonderful supportive husband, and 4 lovely children - all far away with their families. So there is much time to indulge in painting.
Being a happy person, I find that I want to create paintings that portray this. I love colour and nature - This I want to share.
