I started coming to the Community Art Project in Darlington about four years ago. Before that I didn’t really do any artwork. Now I usually draw with felt pens but I have also tried watercolour pencils and paints. I often get my inspiration from other artists’ pictures and I particularly like LS Lowry’s paintings and drawings. I take pride in my work –they are my pictures in my own style and I concentrate hard and don’t rush. It is nice when other people see my pictures (and sometimes buy them!) and tell me what they think of them. It makes me proud and it gives me confidence to carry on.
