I know that usually this is the place for qualifications, commissions and general experience but although I've worked in a lot of different fields from teaching to statistical analysis, I've never done anything remotely artistic!
I started to paint by accident about three years ago.....
I moved to France in my mid-fifties and started to renovate an old farmhouse. Although my French wasn't too bad I was still making a few mistakes. One day a friend invited me to an exhibition opening. When I arrived I found it was actually the first meeting of a new oil painting workshop.
The results are here. I hope you enjoy them!
