I have been painting flowers and sometimes landscapes for more than 50 years. I cannot live without being creative. It is a basic necessity in my life. I have sold many paintings but it breaks my heart to part with them as they have been created with love. Now I prefer to make journals that I and my family can always treasure. I like to paint with watercolour or acrylic , draw with my inktense crayons and pens and I have recently re-kindled a love of calligraphy.
