My name is Christine Freeman (aka: Chrissy). I’m 58 and live in Horbury, just outside Wakefield. While recovering from an illness and becoming increasingly bored watching the same old things on the telly, doing jigsaws that always seemed to be missing one piece and beating myself at Scrabble, my family and friends said I needed a hobby.
After ruling out pot holing and skydiving I decided to try painting. This opened the flood gates for everyone to buy me everything I needed.
It seemed rude not to have a go, so with ideas in my head I started painting. That was 8 months ago and since then I don’t seem to have stopped. I love it and would advise anyone looking for a new outlet to give it a try.
