Here's the dream... about thirty years ago I decided to combine my three passions in life namely, art, nature, and travel and try to make them pay.
The plan was simple enough, I would leave the fridge factory, learn to paint and travel the world; why not?
Being untrained, broke and colorblind wasn't going to put me off.
I got by for a few years in a 'hand to mouth' kind of way but it became apparent that if I was to ever make a reasonable living I had to up my game. I decided to use the remaining money from a small inheritance to print some of my wildlife drawings and to my profound relief, my first market was a great success.
That gave me the confidence I needed to move forward - I'd found my niche.
I've been trading ever since. In the summer I draw and sell my prints in the UK and in the winter I fly off in search of sunshine and wildlife.
It's a tough life but someone's got to do it!
