Since my first book “Deadly Shades of Grey” was published I have been asked several times where the inspiration came from, so I have been meaning to add a page to one of my websites for a while – just to answer that question. You will find it on the menu bar above under the title “The Past”.
The other day the nth person asked me how and why, after 60 years recognition as a professional artist, I started to write. Someone else asked how my two lives overlapped – and seemed surprised at how much writing I had done before I was finally published. So, it has dawned on me that I really ought to start putting some of the answers down, for friends, family and anyone else who might be interested in an artist that writes – or a writer that paints! I am not the first and surely will not be the last – I just hope that you enjoy my rambles… and will not mind the spasmodic nature of my postings. Currently mid-painting and also have just started my fifth book (with my publisher breathing down my neck) you will appreciate that time is not always on my side… I will write again when I have decided where to start – at the beginning, or what I trust is late middle. I hope the end is not yet in sight!
