“I retired early (very early) from a career as a Librarian in N.H.S. libraries. We came to live in the southernmost part of the Alentejo five years ago, and the peace and tranquility I found here in the foothills of the Serra da Brejeira offered me the opportunity to begin making art, and more specifically, painting.
I began with watercolours, dabbled with pastels and am now happily exploring the wider possibilities that acrylics offer.
My preferred subjects are flowers. I love peonies and have painted a few large-scale canvasses featuring these lovely, voluptuous blooms.
I consider myself a beginner. I’m at the start of my painting journey and am keen to learn from other more experienced painters.”
