All monies raised will go to the Willow Foundation and could help us to reach our 10,000th Special Day in 2013.

National charity, the Willow Foundation organises and funds special days for seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds. Founded by former Scotland and Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson and his wife Megs in memory of their daughter Anna, it aims to offer quality of life and time to those most in need. Seriously ill is defined as any condition that is life-threatening. The aim of every special day is to provide time out from treatment allowing young adults to spend time with their family creating precious memories for the future

The painting I've created depicts a day 'Beside the Seaside' here in Brighton. I have used several pebbles 'stolen' from the beach as heads for the people (and dogs) taking a stroll along the promenade. I look for natural markings, chips and contours on the pebbles that can be used to resemble facial, hair and head gear type features. A hole in the pebble becomes a mouth, a chipped area separates the face from the hair and so on. Sometimes I paint on a face, sometimes I need do no more than a dot for an eye.

Her natural disposition is to let the paint dictate the creative process, trusting the medium and her mind’s eye to translate the vision.
