Art and drawing have always been an interest of mine since childhood and one of my favourite subjects at school as a child. Since having a stroke at age 59, it’s like being reborn to have a second opportunity in life to develop a skill which I previously took for granted.  An interest in the sea and boats is where I draw my subject matter from.
