desi 06tn I was born in Romsey and I have lived there all my life. I've loved drawing and painting since childhood.  A change of job in 2007 allowed me to take it up again.  I am largely self taught and I've had valued help from various workshops with the East Devon Art Academy and adult art group attached to Romsey school.  I love colour and light and enjoy trying my hand in different mediums. Currently I'm particularly enjoying using acrylics and experimenting with collage.  I am a member of Artseen. I have exhibited widely in Hampshire and Wiltshire.
