Creativity is a God given gift which everyone has.
Some paint, some write, some illustrate, some act, some make beautiful craft items... the list is endless... but even you (the person reading this) can create a beautiful thing. The only requirement for this creative masterpiece is that it is 'composed' by yourself and you have to like it.
There seems to be so much elitism and exclusivity in art, but I am convinced that everyone is an 'artist'. So get creating!
I mainly paint, stitch etc for myself, not primarily for the commercial market, although it is nice when someone wants to buy a piece of artwork because they like it. I was a primary school teacher for 13 years and believe that art is essential in life's journey. I couldn't survive without it. It's part of my DNA.
I have had paintings selected for the Birmingham Open Exhibition and the annual exhibition at the Patchings Art Centre, Nottingham, organised by 'The Artist' and 'Leisure Painter' magazines.
