Elizabeth, who is now deep into her retirement years, was in her much younger days a member of the famous Tiller Girl dance troupe and with them performed at many major theatres throughout the world, including an appearance at a Royal Command Variety show at the London Palladium. She left the Troupe to marry and now has three children, some grandchildren and great-grandchildren many of whom live close by. She suffered a devastating stroke some eight years ago which has left her totally paralysed on her right hand side and she is now confined to a wheelchair. She is an amazingly inspirational lady who remains cheerful and determined to live as normally as possible despite losing her beloved husband early in 2019.
Some of the examples of her artwork shown below were done before her stroke but she has now, despite having to learn to use her left hand (she was right-handed before her stroke), begun to try to resurrect her drawing and watercolour talents and is once again producing some impressive results.
