6. How long have you been an artist for?
Since I was three, but with renewed vigour since I turned 40.
7. What are your ambitions as an artist?
Enough success to be able to keep painting so I can paint at least some of what is rattling round in my head.
8. What exhibitions have you participated in?
My first solo show is on until May 30 2009 at The Gate in Cardiff (details at www.elaura.com/_painting) and I have been invited to hang another show mid year at Glenwood Centre, also in Cardiff...
