THEY say that life begins at 40 but for one Biggar woman her art career has started...in her 80s.

Sue Barnes (82) is displaying some of her fabulous work at the Aroma Coffee Shop in Biggar, after wowing her art teacher with a series of stunning pieces.

A member of Carol Taylor’s class for the past five years, the teacher has been blown away with Sue’s abstract work.
