I grew up in the Bedfordshire countryside hence my love of animals, moving to North Devon with my husband and small children in the 80's. I am a self taught artist and have only discovered coloured pencils in the last twelve months and am now totally hooked, you can take them anywhere as there is no waiting to dry and having to take water with you. I do use other mediums but am still learning with coloured pencils, what type of paper/ which pencils are best, so it is still very much trial and error!!
I have only entered one competition before and was really thrilled to receive a Highly Commended for one of my paintings in the Leisure painter category at Patchings 2017 competition/exhibition
