About Me

As odd as this might sound, one sunny day I decided to paint a cow!


I just wanted to see if I could...so I had a go...and lots of people told me how much they liked it...so I painted some more...I had more and more requests...not just for cow paintings...but for other farm animals...and pets too.


So that's what I do!


I spend my days painting fabulous farm animals and pampered pets...and I love it!
