How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

My work tends to be along the more traditional lines, with watercolours quite detailed and oils a little more loosley painted. I have a passion for the Herefordshire landscape and the black & white villages. Why do I paint ? it gives me great pleasure and satisfaction, and when I hand over a commission to a customer, I love to see their face light up. Then I know I've met my brief !

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Being an artist is really just an extention of myself. It's what I do. Like breathing. I can't imagine not painting.I love to watch a piece evolve from a blank canvas.
