Hello! Today saw the climax of the great racing festival at Aintree with the 167th running of the Grand National. I always find it hard to watch and yet so compelling, the race had two false starts, horses taking the wrong path but thankfully passed this time with no serious injuries to horses or jockeys. The race was won by Pineau De Re. Now we can all breathe a sigh of relief until next year! Here a my drawings:

Pineau de Re, leaves them behind
I’m a mixed media visual artist working in Leicestershire in the UK. I trained in Fine Art using different media including oils and acrylics, but my recent work reflects my love of drawn media, especially pen, ink, watercolour and pastels. My theme is movement – My subjects are varied from landscape, animals, musicians, dancers and sport, especially cycling. The unifying feature of all these subjects is that they are constantly changing – there is movement and energy everywhere.
