Brian was encouraged by his art teacher at school to follow a degree in Graphic Design. On completion he worked for a graphic design company for a number of years before a change in career meant that painting became a hobby until relatively recently when he has devoted more time to travelling, photography and the painting of wildlife and wild places. Brian paints in watercolour, goache and acrylics.
Liz had no formal art training though always had a powerful urge to take it up, but other commitments prevented her doing so until 12 years ago when she enrolled for watercolour classes, then moved on to her preferred media of acrylics and pastels. She paints both landscapes and animal portraits and has recently been commissioned to paint family pets, particularly dogs and horses.
