Original watercolour painting by International Artist Jan Sergeant
We are extremely lucky for another year to have been gifted an original watercolour painting by inspirational international artist, Jan Sergeant, as one of our annual raffle prizes. Jan paints to express herself after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, using techniques such as painting with tissue because her hands are too weak to hold brushes accurately. Jan is a good friend of our valued committee member, Brian Marsden. Brian is also diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and lost his wife Ann, to Sporadic CJD in 2017.
Watch the video below to see Jan talking about her work and having Parkinson’s – we are struck by how many of her sentiments reflect the experiences of those affected by CJD and their loved ones.
