Watercolours happened "by
accident" for me about 18 years ago.
I used to run my dog along the Thames River near Vauxhill Park.
Always a keen observer of nature, I began to admire the plethora
of wild flowers. I started gathering and identifying. The vast number
of different species was overwhelming. The range of their amazing
shades really attracted me, so I started pencil sketching them.
Then I attempted watercolours. I began giving away small note cards,
all originals. They usually focused on one or more wildflower scenes
of vibrant colour from nature. I soon realized that this was a wonderful
outlet for my creativity.
