I first exhibited in Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw in June 2000 and continued as a resident artist subsequently. But in 2013 a late diagnosis of a ruptured oesophagus led to severe sepsis, three weeks in an induced coma and three months in hospital. The effects of sepsis and the coma caused PTSD which itself was not diagnosed for over two years. In 2015 I was able to work for a few weeks but then started to struggle again. The PTSD returned in 2018. However, this time thanks to Veterans NHS Wales I was able to start therapy in mid-2019 and this is ongoing. Lifting the burden of PTSD has freed me to paint again. I couldn’t be more pleased!
