Alison joined the Supershoes team after being made unemployed from a job she loved. She wanted something to fill her time, and wanted to push herself. Alison does a lot of creative crafts but doesn't consider herself artistic!
“I started painting Supershoes as a challenge to myself and I feel like I've learned so much! I paint at home and also whenever I have a peaceful (don't say the "q" word!) shift at work - I will happily be painting away inbetween taking 999 calls for the ambulance service. Luckily for me they don't mind, as long as I'm concentrating on the calls when they come in. I love getting feedback from the children we paint for - the first pair I painted made me cry in frustration, but it was all worth it when I saw a picture of the recipient grinning ear to ear.”
