I started writing and illustrating children’s books a few years ago I now have four books self published.
I have been an amateur artist for the past 35 years, starting as a raw beginner at a night class. I continued to paint for pleasure. It was a great way for me to chill out and to express myself in my paintings. I loved painting flowers and I really made this my choice of items to paint.
I was inspiration to write down poems about the bees. I had lots of paintings of flowers completed and I took the poems and the flowers and put them together and I had the makings of a book. My books are selling very well and Libraries/bookshops throughout the country sell them.
Just when I thought I would be retiring, a whole new career is in front of me which I am hugely excited about. I am full of confidence and expectation about the future.
I am a grandmother with three wonderful children and four beautiful grandchildren and I have to say that my grandchildren are my inspiration. I am a Reiki Master and meditate daily.
