Having lived in Chesterfield for 40 years (!!) close to the Peak District in Northern Derbyshire, I have never been far from nature growing up, but as many residents will admit, we very often take our home towns and cities for granted, rarely appreciating the natural beauty that surrounds us, so I feel very privileged to have seen such an abundance of wildlife in such a short space of time. These few, but much enjoyed, walks and cycles out and about have always left me thinking one thing as I stand there admiring each view "I want to paint"!
So in the next few weeks, I will be going back to my first love in art and that is birds. I taught myself to draw using coloured pencils first and foremost. Copying bird illustrations from books when I was little, and have always held a great passion for these feathered animals. So I hope to produce a collection of paintings of these beautiful creatures and offer prints where possible too. Progress images will be posted here on the news blog, and any original pieces will be available to purchase on the STORE page.
