Literature
Remembering The Somme
And the poppies are as red  
As the blood you shed
In the field in 1916
As the shells tumbled down
Bodies covered the ground
As you fought for King & Queen
Then there’s a shout from the back
“Watch your head Jack”
But the bullet came through the sheen
Pierced you through
Broke my heart in two
As you died in the field in 1916.

Well, I started painting very young at 7 years old, I was the youngest ever artist to exhibit and sell in the Great Sheffield Art Show. I am currently a member of both The Royle Art Group & The Heeley Art Club. I have particulary grown fond of painting portraits recently and am concentrating to get that side of my repertoire to the best it can be. Trained as a Private Investigator although not practising as one. Commissions considered. Please do not use my artwork without consulting me first. Thankyou.

Had a couple of exhibitions with the Heeley Art Club so was busy with that as I'm also the Website Admin for the club, hoping to start painting more soon
