I have been painting for about 10 years now as a hobby/pastime. I started by attending drawing classes until I had found my own style and a medium I was happy with. I then progressed by practicing at home, reading books by other artists to get different ideas and attending art clubs. I am currently a member of The Friendly Art Group in Ystalyfera.
I mainly paint with acrylics and pastels and paint various subjects including flowers, landscapes and more recently animals. I find painting an enjoyable, very therapeutic and interesting pastime.
