I'm a self taught artist. I never even thought of painting or sketching until I was 40 years old. I thought I had no talent at all, but through life circumstances, I have been forced to find ways of expressing myself differently than I'd done all my life, which was mainly music. Due to my health I was unable to do what I loved most, so I branched out with different things. Painting, then sketching became 2 of my favorite hobbies. I have fell in love with computer painting!
