Artists & Illustrators 5YOUR LETTERSGeneration artI have drawn and painted for as long as I can remember, mainly for thejoy of it but occasionally exhibiting and selling my work. As a child myuncle worked for Winsor & Newton and each year on my birthday Iwould receive a box of paints. I still have two small oil paintings I didwhen I was 10 years old.Now, whenever my grandchildren come over, they retreat to mystudio and use my materials. When several years ago I asked mygranddaughter: “would you like to be an artist when you grow up?” sheanswered: “I am an artist,” which made perfect sense. Having beensick over the past year I have not had the energy to paint. But with thehelp of Artists & Illustrators I have kept the process going in myimagination and kept my artist’s eye alive. I am constantly absorbingfor when I am ready to pick up where I left off.
