I have always loved art, especially painting. When I was at school I was good at art but there wasn't the opportunities in the 50's for children to follow what they felt they wanted to do. I married in 1959 and went to Mauritius where we stayed for two trips of 3.1/2 years each, returning 1970. My two daughters were born in 63 and 66. I divorced and remarried in the early 70's, and my two sons were born in 78. After 30 yrs I was divorced again and ended up living in Glastonbury. I did some painting in Mauritius and started again before I moved here, and got back into it once I was settled. I love people, animals and the natural world.
