Victoria’s Story

“Arthritis has been very close to my heart. Family members have been affected by the condition for many years and I fully understand how hard it can be to live with it. Arthritis Action staff work tirelessly to offer a vital service to help people cope with the debilitating symptoms of arthritis. Their service has been invaluable for countless people, especially through the ongoing pandemic.

I consider myself a Corporate Partnership Manager by day, and a ‘hobbyist and amateur portrait artist’ by night! I taught myself how to draw as a child, before really rekindling the hobby during the first lockdown in March 2020. What better way to mark this incredible milestone but to utilise my skills and give my time by offering portrait commissions to help raise funds, while also putting smiles on people’s faces as they see their commissioned portrait come to life.”
