BiographyIm a self taught artist who loves to paint many different subjects.I am as happy painting landcapes as I am painting colourful abstracts. It depends on what mood I am in most of the time! I use a variety of mediums-oil, acrylic and encaustic(melted wax) I have lived in Ludlow ,Shropshire all of my life and it is the most beautiful scenery around, just great for inspiration! I am very happily married to Bill and I have a son and daughter who have flown the nest. Bill has 3 boys who have flown the nest--the youngest one and his wife have made us grandparents recently-which I love!

Susie is better and painting now, just for the update. Love your Birch Forest. more too.


Susuie, one of the friends listed at your site, is ill. A get well letter would do her heart good and cheer her up a bit. We live in a world that does not apriciate art. We must care for eachother. So leave a post on he board if you have time. L John TOX
