Painting: from 2006 I have been painting and drawing and exhibiting at the Bath Academy, Galleries in Cornwall and at Craft Fairs. I like to paint harbours and seascapes from our garden and the harbor walls – particularly St. Ives, Mousehole and Mevagissey. I enjoyed painting when young starting again because of the inspiration of Cornwall and the studio at home.
