“I get a buzz from being able to create excellent art and, for me, Parkinson’s actually heightened my creative skills and talent. The Mervyn Peake Awards gives me the opportunity to display these skills.” Alan Osborne – Highly commended in the Photography category for Mervyn Peake Awards 2016Return
