I have drawn and painted all my life, but work, marriage and children put art on the back burner. When I started painting again, I entered work for The Great Sheffield Show, and art in the gardens. It was in later life that I started working as a cave guide for tourists and got the opportunity to do some caving.
It was while looking for inspiration that a friend suggested looking at the cave for inspiration, and I started painting caves and portraits of cavers. I very much enjoy painting portraits.
