I come from a Maltese family, born in Tunisia and arriving in 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. I have been seriously ill over the last few years and it was art that helped in my recovery and bring me out of my depression. It is very therapeutic for me, and I enjoy being with the other artists and exhibiting work, which is beneficial to my mental health. I enjoy acrylic painting and other artists company, I have also been on a religious prayer-painting week.
