'Art saved my life' - Passion helped Suffolk woman through toughest times

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

A Suffolk woman who found herself able to overcome challenges in her life through her creative passion has shared her story.

Susie Hammond's journey to an exhibiting artist began as something to do when her son was born, but found it provided further support during other stressful times in her life.

She said: “I found myself pregnant at 39 and had a little boy and became a single parent, and so I've solidly brought him up and I needed something to do. He wasn't very well initially when he was born and had a few problems.
