Andrew Coffey's story

This is Andrew Coffey, who we met through our Breathing Space group in Gorleston.

Andrew has been an artist all his life, portraying his work in painting, photography and other media.

Andrew and his wife approached us at the group, and told us all about his life. He used to produce portraits on the sea front for many years, and is now an Octogenarian!

He has never had an exhibition of his work .. and asked if there was any way we could help him to achieve this goal now.

We gave him details about the Art of Norwich Exhibition taking place at the moment in Norwich. This is a regular event and has a strong turn out both for participants and audience.

Andrew and his wife arranged to take part and have two walls of photographs currently displayed. He absolutely loved the whole process of preparing for it and hopes to take part in future ones.

Andrew produces images of scenery and portraits and has a great eye for composition and catching the essence of a scene. Looking at the images he has displayed at the exhibition really make you want to rush off to the beach for a summer holiday!
