I started painting when I was 50 years old I bought a watercolour set and went to the library to get books on painting. Then I was introduced to an art class, for 3 years I attended a class where you put 50p in the class and I learned to do landscapes and animals.
I started making greetings cards from my paintings and a friend of mine said her mother had a small grocery shop and the shop owner bought some of my cards and told me to go and get other places to try and sell my cards for me.
I also make silver plated jewellery and have had craft fairs over the years. Sometimes I make very little but I still plug away. I am 64 years old and I do have several small outlets that sell my goods.
