Philip Carthew took up a paintbrush when he retired after many years in the Financial Services Industry.
He had not painted since School Certificate days! His artistic flair was developed on first leaving school as a display and advertising artist, and when travelling overseas, he was fortunate to display his talents at Harrods of London.
Now days, he paints purely for his own pleasure, and at the request of friends and family. He paints in all media, but his preference is in acrylics and watercolours.
