I come from a Maltese family, born in Tunisia, coming to England as a baby. Raised in London’s East End, I am divorced with three children and three grandchildren. I have always found art is a great way of expressing your feelings and relieving stress. Last year I was seriously ill and it was art that brought me out of my depression. It is very therapeutic for me, and I enjoy being with the other artists in my art group and exhibiting work, which is beneficial to my mental health. I enjoy acrylic painting and I enjoy other artist. I have been on a religious prayer-painting week. Recently I have been very ill but painting helps me recover.
