Special person, Patricia Faulkner from South London, was an artist in her prime, but had to give up her painting ambitions to Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI).  It was too painful forcing Patricia to reconsider her career

She was intent on continuing to be involved with the work so gave lessons to aspiring painters.  Many of them eager to become famous in the business. They also stayed in touch with her during their aspiring careers

Patricia had a great following because of her techniques and style in her artistry.  The students were keen to pick up any skills she could pass on to them.

    I new Patricia in the 1970s when we lived in Crystal Palace and its good to see that she is still OK. Interesting interview, I had forgotten about her hands but remember well some very fun times. Always loved her work.
