Great Michael’s Anchor

Great Michael's Anchor

About this memory

“I took up art 15 years ago when my husband died. I maybe used to draw for the bairns when they were wee, you know like a Mickey Mouse. Then one year my church was doing a calendar and they knew I did the art class, and asked me if I wanted to do something for the calendar. I did the Newhaven lighthouse and the one of Great Michael’s anchor. They were just pictures that I really liked, so I painted them.”
