Blind military veteran Bernard Parker learnt to paint at the Art & Craft Workshop at Blind Veterans UK’s Brighton Centre. Bernard had attended the Workshop as a ‘Daily’ for a few years, enjoying many crafts but avoided painting having been told at school that he had no talent for it. Bernard was persuaded by an art & craft instructor to give painting a go in August 2014, in his early 80’s. Both Bernard and his instructor were surprised and impressed with the results. Bernard has been happily producting and selling work ever since. www.blindveterans.org.uk Bernard passed away in April 2017.
