John donates artwork

Smethwick artist, John?Fairbrother, was so inspired by a visit to Lemur Wood that he set up his easel, painted his favourite small primate – and donated the artwork to DZG.

painting-2webJohn, who works in a photo processing lab at Asda’s Cape Hill branch, has enjoyed art since an early age, but took a break from his hobby when he started work.

He said: “A few years ago I started drawing again then moved on to painting. I have always loved animals and wildlife. I?just think animals are so interesting; I could watch them for hours.

“The painting of DZG’s lemur took me more than four days tocomplete.”

Head of Media and Communications, Jill Hitchman, said:?”It was really kind of John to donate his work to us and we have currently put it on the wall in the administration offices where it has been much admired by visitors.”
