Unlike most Artists, I started drawing at the age of three! I come
from a family of artists and writers so when my mother saw that I loved crayoning on all available surfaces, she had the kitchen wall in our (very old ) house painted matt black and gave me a big box of coloured chalks. She then got me to draw the stories she told me and that was my very early start in the world of art. I'll keep you posted with what came next, soon. Regards, Anne D'Alton.
