I took up sketching in the 1980s, on holiday. The results were of course varied, but one or two I liked, and all of them held my memory of that particular scene in quite a different way than a snapshot . I have collected some of the sketches in the 'sketchbook’ section of my website Moving to Brixton with a new job as a journalist on London Disability News, I thought I would join an art class. Again I found that ink was my best medium. Naturally I joined the art class and the Eynsham Arts Group when I moved to Eynsham. With the progression of my MS, my work - in acrylics and ink, has necessarily become more abstract, but no less enjoyable. Some people have even bought my paintings. A great compliment.
