Painter - Artistic
I paint as a hobby, self taught. Landscapes mainly and have yet to tackle people/faces but have done some animals. I have also used my artistic skills in the past to create my own wrapping paper and greetings cards. Have mainly worked in acrylic but have used watercolours and am slowly learning oils. Could easily turn my hand to larger projects like stage backdrops for example.
