Introduction

I am a member of an art group that gives prompts for a drawing every day. Today's was 'Introduction' because we're starting a new month and because we have never actually done one! I thought I would share mine here. (Would be lovely if you decided to do the same so I can get to know you all a bit better!) Here goes.....I'm 38 (till tomorrow lol), married and have two cats (who we refer to as splats cause they do...regularly). I have been lucky in that I have found two things in life that I am hugely passionate about....art and people. I have never been to art school (crappy art teacher who told me I wasn't good enough) so have no formal training but I do have a first class Masters in organising for social and community development specialising in health. I worked in the charity sector for over 10 years before taking the plunge and focusing on the art full time (I still volunteer). I have illustrated a few books (fiction and non-fiction), regularly receive commissions and am very proud (and a little stunned) to have sold my work all over the world. I love all music but rock in particular, big stompy boots, learning (yes, I am sad! lol), social justice, our splats, the theatre, cooking, drinking (which I hardly do ever..stop laughing!), art, horror movies and my lovely hubby! (I cheated slightly with this pic...I looked when drawing me but everything else was done blind!)
