Getting back to art

Composite of stages of orchid drawing
 
Like all art students, I graduated from college swearing never to give up drawing, painting ,or in my place, sculpting. And like so many others, real life then got it the way. Even lecturing in an art college sapped away the creative juices and energy to maintain my own work. There have been several attempts to get back to art and this website is the result of the most recent which has been on course for over two years now and the website is the latest step!

I have gone back to basics and the colour pencils which were a childhood favourite Christmas present. No Christmas was complete without a new set of Cumberland Pencils. Colour pencils have moved on since then and got better and better!
