Like many people, my art teacher, at school, told me that I was not good at art.
Later in my life, I decided that the art lessons were too restrictive.
Now, I make pieces of art from almost anything. I play with paint and colour and make collages.
Given freedom of expression, ANYONE can create something pleasing
to themselves ............. on many occasions, pleasing to others.
I do not like knitting jumpers but ..........
I can be creative with wool
I do not like making clothes but ...........
I can be creative with material
For these latest pieces, I decided to use only material, wool and bits
and pieces which I have squirreled away for many years.

A Glimpse of The Gambia
I hope you enjoy looking at the artifacts and photographs from
my last trip.
Please feel free to handle everything and to taste some things.
The wonderful picture by my Gambian artist friend, Faminteh is for sale.
I have been lucky enough to run art and craft classes for people with
mental health problems. I was able to motivate and inspire them. We
had an exhibition in the library and the visitors' book was full of praises
for the work.
In October, I will be returning to The Gambia to work, as a volunteer at
Tanka Tanka, the ONLY mental health hospital in the country. As usual
mental health does not attract funds. I will have to pay for all my own
materials. All the proceeds from the sale of these pieces will go towards
Glimpse of the Gambia;
items to be bartered for or auctioned towards the end of the show
