The Accidental Artist | Painting

4th June 2021

I didn’t do art at school… I never thought I was good enough.

I’ve always been fascinated with different artists though, especially van Gogh, Monet, Picasso and Munch.

I recently signed up for some online art classes and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

The great thing about art is that it’s subjective, open to interpretation, and importantly, doesn’t really matter what anyone else thinks!

Much like anything in life really!

So, with that in mind, here’s one for anyone who feels they aren’t good enough…

… if there is something you’ve always wanted to do, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.

I say ignore the trolls and do it!

Raising For Charity

In August 2020, my best friend was diagnosed as having Myeloma, a cancer that affects the bone marrow.

While there is a lot of awareness and publicity over other forms of cancer, there is not so much known about this one.

There are various treatments currently offered, but as yet, there is no cure.

Any money raised from the sale of my paintings or donated using the button below will be given to Myeloma UK towards funding research to find a cure.


Current Target: £1,500

Amount raised to date:


(and to those of you who have purchased one of my paintings or made a donation, a very special thank you!)
