Love your bio....keep up the great Positive Quest!! 5***** Sincerely, Doris

Artist Statement
for Shadyfish
ShadyfishSix years ago I started my recovery from addiction and life long fight against Bi-Polar disorder. I was fortunate enough to be accepted onto a 12 week art course and like all good things it finished with no additional help and support. This is what prompted me to take matters into my own hands and set up my own charity called The Shadyfish Xperiance where we run community art and social drop-in-groups which are open to everyone. Well six years latter we are still running, and now for the first time in over 20 years I am employed (part time)
and whenever possible to paint. If you would like to know more log on to our NEW website at WWW.SHADYFISHXPERIANCE.ORG
