I was one of the organisers (as a Forever Friends Volunteer)of an Art Exhibition held in Queen Square in 2009. We raised £12K for the RUH and I thought perhaps I could try painting, as I was inspired by the range and diversity of the paintings on display.
In 2010 I joined Timsbury Art Class on a Friday morning and have painted a variety of paintings in a variety of mediums, watercolour, acrylic and oil pastel. I enjoy the painting with others and this motivates to keep going even when the results are very disappointing.
I am 62, live in Midsomer Norton and enjoy music, cooking and gardening.
