'Mum and Me'


My niece Fiona is a Midwife. She is doing a charity trek in Nepal next year and has to raise in excess of £3,000. Recently she held a 'Mothers Day' fundraiser and I did this painting for her. I felt it covered both the Mothers Day theme and The Genesis Research Trust charity Fiona is raising money for. Well done Fiona, I am proud of you!

this is incredible; you are so talented. It must be such a joy to get lost in your art and see results like this. (I looked for an email to write you, but wanted to say thankyou for your latest warm comment/my blog)

Thank you so much for your lovely comments Carole, they mean a lot to me. I have my email address on my profile. I had put it on a new line so it wasn't on view. Thanks again! :)
