Bio

I have always wanted to paint but did not know where to begin. Then I discovered Folk/Decorative Art.

Participating in lessons and workshops as well as learning from instructional books, along with YouTube videos I managed to get started.

I like to paint from photographs I take, and I have some lovely friends who have also supplied me with their favourite photography shots to paint.

Like many of us, I am not in the best of health these last few years with Osteoarthritis, mainly in the feet and back, so I can only paint for a few hours a day.

My favourite medium is acrylics, although I try coloured pencils, inktense blocks and pencils, mechanical clutch pens, and graphtint pencils I have yet to play with.

I have also used traditional oil paint over acrylics, plus water soluble oil and I intend to do watercolour paintings hoping the magic of watercolour will be present.

I really love doing art and viewing the wonderful art images you the members are creating. You delight me and cheer me when I need it most.

Lovely work, Kay!  Those videos you used to learn must have been very good indeed (plus I'm sure there's a lot of "natural" talent involved here)!

Jayne,  big thank you for your lovely  encouraging comment.

Well, Nice to see you being honored here my friend! (Well deserved, by the way). You know I love your art and have for about forever! I am always impressed by your lovely creations. You have a ton of talent. I have many favorites in your gallery. I especially like your portrait of Warwick. I would have liked to have met him and heard his stories. You captured him so well! Love, Marguerite

Thank  you so much  Marguerite! You know I love your art !   and you too  did a very grand drawing of Warwick ! We cannot replace him ,( the person,) but maybe we will find another character, I keep looking on the streets and in pubs :-)) and morgue file  but to no avail to date.

Love,

Kay xx
