Artist’s gift is close to her heart

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH: -

A PAINTER whose art­work fea­tured in a lo­cal art com­pe­ti­tion has do­nated the pro­ceeds of its sale to char­ity.

Liz Watkin, 58, from Hurds­field, do­nated the £100 for her mixed me­dia col­lage ‘Cot­tage’, at the Mac­cles­field Open Art ex­hi­bi­tion, to the Mac­cles­field and district branch of the Mul­ti­ple Scle­ro­sis So­ci­ety.

Liz stud­ied fine art at univer­sity and en­joys work­ing with mixed me­dia and cre­at­ing col­lages and ab­stract paint­ing. She said: “I do­nated the money to the MS So­ci­ety be­cause I have fam­ily mem­bers with MS. My late aunt Marie al­ways tried to make the most of life and con­tin­ued to do things she en­joyed like writ­ing po­etry. My brother-in-law, Phil, has also suf­fered with MS for years. I’m happy my art­work en­abled me to help the MS So­ci­ety as they do such great work and sup­port so many peo­ple with this ill­ness.”
