In March 2009 I suffered a severe stroke. This left me unable to use my right hand, which was my dominant hand. I was in a wheelchair for 12 months until I learnt to walk again.
In Dec 2012 my wife and I went on a cruise, which as part of the on-board entertainment offered a 10 day water colour painting course. I decided to take part by attempting to use my left hand. On returning home I continued to paint, changing from Water colour to Acrylics and then finally to Oils.
Over the next few years, with the help of You Tube and Sky Arts, I have continued to learn and improve my new found skill. Having had no previous experience in painting, it has been quite a steep learning curve but one which I enjoy immensely and has also helped in my rehabilitation..
Mabef Easel - fantastic!
