took in sixteen paintings to the Princess and our house looks
very empty. The walls look very bare. I do like people to buy
my paintings but also I dont really want them to go. I get
very attached to them," she told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
success story has been picked up by the national press and the
exposure has helped boost sales of her work.
