I was born and grew up in Warwickshire. I studied fine art in Birmingham before embarking on a career as a primary school teacher. I am now working part-time so that I can devote more time to my life-long passion for painting. My paintings, in oils and acrylics, reflect my love of the natural world around us. I now live in Market Drayton and have been an active member of the Stafford Art Group for several years. You can contact me through my website www.gillstokesart or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 079 694 81 363

Having lived most of my life in Africa, I now live and work permanently in Stafford, U.K. Years spent in Botswana are the inspiration for my work and it is where I came to have a love for animals in their natural habitat. I paint mainly from personal experiences; so many of the animals featured in my paintings have a story to tell. I paint predominantly in watercolour because I feel that no other medium can match its qualities and it's transparency lends itself to the light and colours of Africa. I have spent this past year doing animal portraits - something I said I would never do - but never say never.
