I have been painting, drawing, photographing and making things most of my life (apart from those times when Life got in the way!) I have been to numerous classes and courses and studied art history.I have had a go at many art and craft forms. I love experimenting and trying new things. As such I seldom stick to one art form or theme for very long (although I may return to it). So I don't think I have developed a recognisable or distinctive style as you will see as you view my galleries. But I try not to take myself or my artistic efforts too seriously these days, and go where my fancies take me. One of my favourite things to do is to take a photo or a scan as a starting point, and then transform it in the digital darkroom, where I am still very much a beginner (and a technophobe) - in the process creating something new and unique that could probably not have been created by any other means.
