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 animals too.

 

So that's what I do!

 

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