From the artist: I am a Darlington artist. Whilst I have some disabilities I believe these extra challenges offer a new perspective on how I see the world around me - in a very positive way.

The exhibition is titled 'Smile Art' from what Bonnie Davies who volunteers for The Bridge said to me at our first meeting, "How do you keep smiling through your struggles?" My response was Art!

I hope you enjoy my exhibition and hope my work can inspire you to get your paint brush out. So give it a go. I did, and I am feeling better for trying.

The exhibition takes place from the 1st to 27th of July 2019. Sales profits from the exhibition will be donated by the artist to Cancer Research UK.
