Original Contemporary Paintings
Welcome to my blog
I am an artist, who enjoys trying many crafts from painting, ceramics, glass, photography and textiles.
I love to paint in all mediums.
I enjoy trying new methods of painting and all being well, will add new work to my blog.
I have never been very good at writing letters so hello world lets see how I get on.

Boom Bang A Bang is just how my head feels today. I went to the dentist this morning and did not feel like painting. It started off as something else which I did not like so piled the colour on.
