A GRANDMOTHER from Dunmow is proving it's never too late to learn by holding her first ever solo art exhibition seven years after first picking up a paint brush.
Linda Series, 56, of Newton Green, has called her exhibition at The Flitch Gallery 'My Journeys So Far' reflecting her subjects.
"I was on holiday when a keen artist friend of mine suggested I have a go," said Linda explaining how she started to paint.
"I didn't do much art at school and the painting I did of a brook with a tree next to it, I think a five-year-old could have done better."
