I am a relative new comer to the art scene and have been doing oil paintings for the last +/-8 years. I was going to a art teacher for about 6 of those years and felt restricted and then decided to learn and develope on my own. I love painting animals, birds and landscapes and the odd abstract from time to time and would eventually like to start learning to paint portraits. I love a lot of colour and my artwork reflects this. I am still learning and realize to become a great artist takes time, dedication and skill and is definately not achieved overnight. I take my inspiration from the beauty and colours of nature and enjoy being out in nature.
