My left ear lobe was cut off in an accident when I was a young child. The first I knew is when my mother started screaming. That was when I felt the pain. I was rushed to the then local hospital where luckily it was sewn back on by a surgeon at Bangour General.
I discovered years later that I share my birthday with Vincent Van Gogh, and I guess the similarities end with the fact we’re both artists, the ear thing [his was self inflicted], and mental illness. I’m bipolar, as well as being physically disabled.
I was first encouraged in my artistic abilities by my primary school head teacher, who liked my painting of pink, blue and white snow [aged 5] so much that she hung it in her office. All positive comments came from my school teachers and peers, leading to my college diploma in art & design and subsequent university degree in humanities and social sciences, majoring in ancient history & classical archaeology.
My work has appeared in the Oxford International Art Fair, The Lady Magazine, and Howden Arts Centre to name a few.
Enjoy looking at my work, and feel free to contact me with any comments and/or questions. I will always make time for fans of my work.
I hope you will love my work as much as I loved creating it.
