Hello! Welcome to my gallery.
Many years ago I dreamed of becoming an artist. Then, life happened. To cut a long story short, I became too ill to follow my dreams, and the course of my illnesses left me with cataracts. I became ‘legally blind’. There were times when I thought I would never draw or paint again.
Ten years on, and two cataract operations later, I am back at my drawing board. I am not completely recovered, and I still have to pace myself, but who doesn’t?
It’s been a long time since I was able to take my artwork seriously. I’ve forgotten a lot, and I have changed, so no doubt my art style has also changed. One thing I know for certain – my years of not being able to create art left me more determined than ever to make something of my skills.
So join me on this incredible journey as I rediscover who I am, and explore anew the joy of creativity.
