I'm a native of Yorkshire, England and live there to this day, still inspired by its grandeur and wealth of different landscapes. I began using oil paints twenty years ago, teaching myself how to use them through trial and error, reading every manual I could find and picking the brains of more experienced artists I met through art societies and life classes.
I am learning digital art techniques (very slowly) as a means of speeding up my output
At the end of 2009 I started this website providing free tutorials in drawing and painting.
I currently design greeting cards and write and illustrate children's ebooks available as pdf downloads and on Amazon Kindle.
Incidentally I built this site using
a system of powerful online tools, hosting and everything else you need to start a content rich website. There's a free trial period and a money back guarantee, though I doubt you'll need it once you see the benefits.
My hope for this site is that it will develop into a community of artists of all abilities. That some will pick up the pencil and paintbrush for the first time, others will further enhance their art skills and that the accomplished among us will teach us all how to be better artists.
Thanks for visiting and reading my mini-biography.
