About the Artist
My talent lay undiscovered for 47 years and at 50, it is starting to emerge. I enjoy creating art, I love working with alcohol inks on various substrates. I also enjoy painting flowers, landscapes and abstracts. I began painting after participating in a paint party night. Online, I was inspired by people like Alexis Bonavitacola, Kimberly Deene and Sheryl Williams. I have taken classes from all of them and have learnt from them.
