I have been producing art as long as I can remember; when I was a toddler I’d sit by my grandma’s side while she made beautiful oil paintings. Her name was Beatrice Sophia Armstrong Coleman. She would talk to me about the colours and textures in trees, water, flowers etc. I would, as I got older, draw as she painted. She encouraged me to become an artist.
