I joined an A-level art course just before I was 40 and loved every moment of it. It was as if I discovered a gift that had been lying dormant for years.

As a Christian, my faith in God pervades every aspect of my life and every aspect of my artwork. When I paint, I feel that God is part of the picture, even when I am painting a landscape or a flower.

I am definitely a colour person and usually work in either acrylic or oil paint on canvas.  I sometimes experiment with other media, including mosaic, silk painting and more recently sculptures from driftwood.


Since I started painting, I have been on an amazing creative journey. I have done things I could never have imagined, including painting in front of an audience of 2000 people at Spring Harvest and painting regularly in church over a 5 year period.

I know that God didn't give me this creative gift in order to fill my spare bedroom with canvases. I decided early on that I would sell my pictures, if anyone wanted to buy them. I have been very encouraged by a steady trickle of sales and by positive reactions to my work, when it is displayed.

I have now reached the stage where I will introduce myself to people as an artist.

I used to be a teacher, so I don't mind speaking in front of a roomful of people. I have spoken to groups on occasion, using my artwork and giving the story of my life and my faith. I would like to be invited to do this in churches more frequently.
