I started painting in 2000 after I retired from work. Somehow never having done it before even when at school. I find it a wonderful hobby. I like detailed work in watercolour, acrylic or oils.
Living in Corbridge in North East England, much of my work features this area. I have family in Vietnam and have painted various scenes depicting life in that beautiful and interesting country.
Retirement has given me more time to travel and indulge in my other hobby of photography. Many of my photographs provide material for my paintings.
