Denise Coles

Denise Coles launched her artisitic career aged 4 when she successfully entered numerous newspaper 'colouring competitions' using wax crayons. A 2/6d (12.5p) was always the first prize.

Sixty years on and following retirement, a surprise gift from her husband of acrylic paints, prompted her serious artistic endeavours.

She paints 'anything which appeals', but particularly old buildings and portraits. A recent prize-winner in Essex, Denise exhibits locally and in West Norfolk.
