The artist, Anne La Bouchardiere, also known as Anne Gibbons, lives in Sidmouth and is in her late 80s.

She has been painting for most of her life after initially studying art in India.

Mrs Gibbons spent much of her life in the UK working as a nurse, but finally obtained a fine arts degree in this country, from the Plymouth College of Art and Design, at the age of 60.

She said she has a garage full of her own paintings representing 70 years, and decided to 'use them positively'.

The proceeds will go to The East African Missionary Society (TEAMS), a Christian organisation working with local organisations and churches in Uganda. It is involved in projects to support education, health, agriculture and enterprise.
