About Me Although I have a formal art background, a university degree, and graduate work at several art colleges,as well as a stint as a gallery artist in a big gallery, all my work was in abstract and semi abstract art. When I turned 60 a few years ago, I asked myself, if I was really painting what I wanted what would it be? The surprising answer was animals and realism, so I started at the beginning retraining myself. Each year I've done intensive study on one particular animal, and in 2009 I started with birds. To my great surprise and delight my first bird painting got me a spot in the 2009 Birds in Art show at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum. I'm gobsmacked, it's the greatest honor of my career. Birds are an unending source of inspiration, won't have enough years left to explore it all no matter how long I live. In one month of birdwatching, my life is forever changed.
