About Me

I have many passions, some are constant, some change. One that has always been there is a passion for art, but in different forms.

When I was very young it was drawing and painting. Don’t all children love to do that? Later came photography and then digital art and jewellery making. I suppose painting just stayed there. It keeps coming back!

A big battle of my life has been that of the bulge. Up and down and now down for good I hope. So exercise and getting fit has become a new passion.

Reading fiction is another. But it is crime fiction, Scandinavian crime fiction, in particular ‘crime noir” that is my current passion.

And finally, I mustn’t forget the obvious, cats.

    • I am enjoying seeing your art every week – it arrives via email. The break has been too long. I’ve been unwell. I haven’t even picked up a camera. Your work inspires me- it keeps getting better and better. Perhaps I will photograph the garden I am making. Lovely to hear from you Ritva.
