Mrs Procaijlo said: "I am grateful for the opportunity to share my art with others.

"I want to see how the work is perceived and find out what other people think about it. I have a sense of curiosity about the response I receive."

She spoke of the beginnings of her interest in painting: "I have a passion for learning and I started to enjoy painting whilst studying at West Suffolk College.

"I found there was no pressure or expectation and that was the moment my adventure with painting began.

"It became more than a hobby during lockdown."
