“It all started when a friend’s daughter read my palm and said I had an artistic streak!

“No one believed it so I thought I will see if she is right and the rest is history.”

He now uses mainly acrylic ink and acrylic for abstract paintings, but still does the odd traditional watercolour.

“I have been lucky enough to sell paintings and also had one accepted for exhibition in the Silk Museum in Macclesfield last year,” he added.
