John (Glass Painter) and Virginia Foley (Acrylic Artist)
John Foley was a driver his entire life until he lost his leg. While spending months learning to walk again he learned the art of painting on glass. Since John is of retirement age and can no longer drive, he paints to pass the time and is very proud of the work he does. As an animal lover he is happy to donate part of each sale to animal rescue. His work is so popular that every one of his paintings have been sold and are now by commission only.
Virginia discovered her love of painting a few years ago while attending one of those painting events (it was a fundraiser for a dog rescue she regularly donates to). Since then she has not only painted with a brush but has discovered paint pouring and now paints on household items, jewellery, furniture and more. Of course Virginia would combine her love of painting with her love of animals and is happy to donate a portion of all sales to animal rescue.
