2013 was an exciting year for me. My solo exhibition The Granny Peace Brigade  was shown at Saint Peter’s Church. It featured 60 feet of paintings and drawings derived from my on–the–scene photos and sketches, documenting the public protests of this feisty group of senior peace activists. Happily, many “grannies” were on hand to sing and celebrate with me.
