“I’m looking forward to my ‘Talk and Art Demonstration’ at the Spring Fair International. I will be painting little elephants in my watercolour demonstration, from photographs kindly given to me by one of my favourite charities; the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. I will talk about my own experiences of ‘A Life in Art’; my motivations, the joy and the challenges ….and I hope to inspire other artists to follow their dream. After all, we are all on this artistic journey together!”
