sutton

I am a watercolour artist and part time carer living in sutton south London. I've always loved painting from my school days and have attended Sutton College Of Libral Arts for many years undertaking various painting course from mixed media to acrylic and settling on my favourite medium of watercolour. I have studied a foundation in drawing with the open college of the arts and I help run an art therapthy group at the salvation army in sutton. I am also actively involved with the carshalton and wallington art group as both there membership secretary and artist. I take part in regular exhibitions and local art fairs. My passion for painting helped me come out of depression when I lost some close friends, so I took up painting again after a 10 year break. This has now given me a new purpose and passion in life and Ihope to further that journey with the SAA.
