I’m selling handmade Xmas cards, cards and vibrant watercolours of Selsey and Scotland. I would love people to swing by and say hello!”
Bea added: "My art work - is a joy, a pain ( sometimes!) but mostly gives me an incredible buzz! I've travelled a lot , especially to Crete, which I love, and find inspiration from painting my native Scotland - and, of course, lovely Selsey and West Sussex!
"I love vibrant colours, both in clothes and my paintings as well as my home.....I can recommend having a go at painting - it's also very therapeutic... I've taught children from Gran Canaria and from Saudi Arabia as well as Jerusalem - was privileged to teach both the Middle Easter nations and at the Helen Keller School for blind and partially sighted teenagers - the Jewish school for the blind visited and we swapped tips!
"Art is a universal language - a picture is ,indeed, worth a thousand words!"
