As a hobby painter I enjoy most subjects, however I prefer seascapes and portraits normally. I paint in oils as my number one medium, but also use water-colours (very rarely) depending on the subject.


I have been painting and drawing since I was a child, trees in pencil was my favourite back then, now oil has taken over. I attended for only a short time, art classes when I was 14, with a restorer of old masters, this seems to have led me down my current route.
