All my life it seems i have had this burning desire to paint, draw, or do something artistic. since i can remember i have loved realism painting. WHen i met my partner Jo O'brien, who does exceptional oil and pastel painting, i began to realise that i could paint. watching Jo paint and then finally getting a nudge from jo to try painting i gave it a go febuary 2011 and suprised myself and others. now i am excited about what is to come from me in the future.
