Andi Peach shared his story with us about how our paintings are helping him learn how to use his left side. His story is so inspiring that we posted it on our Facebook page (facebook.com/masterpiecebynumbers) and the response was overwhelming!
The members of our community were so supportive towards Andi that he now has many paintings to keep him busy. At last count, we have sent him 10 paintings that have been donated by us and our customers.
'This is my first and hopefully not my last, Masterpiece by Numbers. I just have to save for the next one.
Let me tell you a little about myself, I was an active young person till about 8 yrs ago, when I suffered two massive strokes, which left me unable to use my right hand, I also had a triple heart valve replacement, a year after my strokes I had been right sided all my life and I knew using my left was going to be very difficult, I don't give into things easily and with much trial and error I started to get the confidence to use the left side of my body, it was very challenging, and I still make mistakes.
I saw this and I thought I would give it a go. I actually found it challenging at times, having to paint with your left hand was hard, especially when you had been right sided for most of your life. But I don't give up, there might be mistakes, but I've done it to the best of my new abilities.
Thank you Masterpiece by Numbers for giving me the chance to paint.'
Below are some of the paintings that were sent to Andi by our wonderful community. As you can see, Andi is an amazing painter.
