About


Who

Eddie Tucker (student 512153), originally from Dublin but in Kent since the 1980’s.  Day job is Service Centre Manager for a refrigeration service company.

I am 56 yrs old, living in Maidstone, Kent with my wife Gill, 3 sons and my labradoddle Cocoa.

In the early stages of Fine Art BA (Hons) with the Open College of the Arts.

I have just completed my 3rd course with OCA, Watercolour Practise (Dec’16) and will now continue with Level 2 Investigating Drawing.

Why

Having decided to give my art a foundation and started with a Painting BA (Hons) at end of July 2013, with the Open College of the Arts (OCA).

This is the next (big) step after doing evening classes in Drawing and Painting for a couple of years, after having done very little art for 20 years. I suppose I will have to unlearn all my bad habits as I go through this course.  But I’m ready to give it a go . . . .   .
