Having been a fan of the Rolling Stones and amazed that they are still performing, I was inspired to show them as they appeared at Glastonbury. I felt their faces reflect their lives.
My career in primary teaching and as an art/design specialist allowed me to learn to use and experience a wide range of materials, media and form to express my ideas. I illustrated for Flutewise magazine for 20 years. I have been using pastels most recently, and find their versatility, wide colour range and the way they link drawing and painting, suit my style of work. I focus mainly on portraiture or both people and animals.
