Retired hobby artist. Began painting only a few years ago, although had shown ability in early years. Began life as a classical musician until I married, later worked in journalism and various office positions. For a short time had own smalll business in handmade toys and baby things. Finally turned to art during last few working years, and now it is a central part of my life. My work is not for sale, prefer to paint for love of it, but enjoy sharing with friends and other artists.
