I was born in Nottingham and brought up around Arnold so when I heard the Society was looking for new members I jumped at the opportunity. I have been interested in becoming a member since my dad joined after taking early retirement many years ago.
My first love was drawing using Coloured Pencils. However, in 2011 I took up painting in Watercolours after doing a College course in Sherwood. I went on to do a follow up course using alternative mediums, i.e., Acrylics, and Oils and Soft Pastels. It has been interesting and challenging using these mediums and I am now looking forward to learning more about them.
I would recommend that everyone, who likes painting or drawing, try out at least one new medium.
