Hi everyone, my names is Maggie and I live in the U.K.  I studied art at secondary school and then continued to Teacher Training College.  I am now retired.  I love to learn new art techniques.  I have done various courses recently namely Pet Portraiture, Coloured Pencil Techniques, Botanical Watercolours, Pen and Ink techniques and a few others.  I work mostly in watercolour and graphite and coloured pencil.  I paint most days.  I consider myself to be an amateur but have been fortunate to sell some of my paintings.  I have just enrolled in the Scratchboarding class which I am absolutely loving.  :)

So happy you found us at Paintbasket.  Nolan and Dennis give great instruction and we members love to be a support system for each other.

I saw the lovely portrait you did of Emma in your gallery and look forward to seeing more of your work.  Love the band of red flowers in her hair.
