I have been drawing one way or another ever since I can remember. In 2010 I joined the Taranaki Sketchers. They are a wonderful supportive group and they are improving my sketching skills all the time.
I like to try different media, but my favourite is watercolour. I draw from life, sometimes I take a photograph as a reference.
My display here includes sketches and paintings. All of the sketches are done in the field, some of the paintings are done from sketches and some from photographs. I try and use photographs I've taken myself. I am very much a learner at photography. I have included some of my photos here.
I hope you enjoy my display, and it inspires you to pick up pen, paper and paint!
Here are some of my photographs I have taken.
I translate some of my photos, drawings and sketches into paintings. Here are some of them.
