As you may have seen on the WNAA Facebook page Helen and I have been in the Isles of Scilly for a weeks R&R. I can recommend the islands as being a very interesting place to visit. We hadn’t been before, but you do need to be reasonably fit as walking is the only entertainment, but certainly very special. The Tresco island is the most interesting with lots of sea history and the gardens built on the side of a hill are splendid with plants and flora from around the world.

Several of our members spent the day at the Fermoy Gallery on Heritage Day demonstrating and engaging visitors in various activities. 670 people came through! We were there partly to flag up West Norfolk Artists Association, to help get the gallery space noticed and of course to encourage participation in the arts. We had a mini exhibition as well showing work by those who were involved.
Our annual Summer Exhibition at St Nicholas Chapel, King’s Lynn was a little later than usual this year, due to the Chapel not being available for our usual King’s Lynn Festival slot. However, we still had plenty of visitors to the show and there were good sales of the exhibited works.
HOW DID YOUR JOURNEY AS AN ARTIST START?
I used to draw and paint as a child, my father bought me painting by numbers and although I found the images very strange with their patches of paint, I loved the process and the little pots of colour; I also loved magic painting books though I longed for them to have stronger colours. Throughout my childhood, I was enchanted by illustrations from children’s books, (especially fairy tales and Mabel Lucie Atwell drawings ) and comics.
