I am a cancer survivor. During my chemotherapy I had the opportunity to revisit my passion for art. Not having done any drawing or painting since school I started attending an art class. This class was the most enjoyable part of my life at this time.I found that I could lose myself in painting and forget my problems for a while. Now l am recovered I have enjoyed developing my skills painting landscapes, buildings and portraits in oils. I am fascinated by an artist’s ability to take something ordinary and make it look beautiful.
