|I I have been painting since the age of three, i realised at that early age,Iwas gifted. I started off simple cartoon drawings. Being quite poor young in my teens, with two small children I REALISED i had to turn my skills into money I painted wildlife, sceneries , of which were some of my best work .locals in the village were i lived bought my work and tourists. I know some of my paintings are in England, jerusalem , scotland, ireland. I sold them all very cheap for originals . i painted the odd portrait they were all in oils. I Showed my work at only one exhibition it was at the giants causeway. My mother always described me as an impressionist painter. due to ill heath i dont paint as much , although in my manic depressive illnes i have produced some exellent work. l have dnated some of my sceneries to the hospitals where ive stayed and to the hospice where my mother died. my mother was an unknown artist and my grand father was an artist. I in recent years started painting in acrylic and have painted more scenes i do what i call modern art as well bright colours ,inot known as afamous artist, i class myself famous as i can do it.
