Drawing was always a childhood pastime of mine, and through school years art was my favoured subject.
On leaving school I chose the apprenticeship route over the offer of an art foundation course but managed to keep up practice for a few more years attending evening classes at a local secondary school and life drawing sessions at St Helen’s House in Derby.
After a very long spell away from drawing & painting I joined Derby Sketching Club in 2021. Glad to be back to drawing on a regular basis and mixing with like-minded folk I also feel privileged to be part of what has been a long established derby club.
