I really like this.
I grew up in a small West Yorkshire town called Batley, though actually born in Dewsbury, which is only about 10 minutes away.
While still at Batley Boys High School, I was diagnosed with Leukaemia aged 15. (Actually the week before I turned 16).
The treatment left me in a wheelchair due to complications from the 6 months I spent in ICU.
Once at home I set myself rehabilitation goals. Including speech and physical theropies and art for a pastime. This is now something I try to do daily and have found abstract and mixed media to be my favourites.
Im self taught from youtube and books from which I learnt many techniques, which shows in my art.
I’m now 30 and live at home with help. I have a positive attitude to life and take my inspirations from people, places and things I see throughout my day.
