Norfolk artist Graham Lain will present his winter exhibition at Spooner Row Church, near Wymondham, from Friday, November 30, to Sunday, December 2.

Having spent his working life as an architectural technician, Mr Lain said he felt lucky to have found a lifelong passion.

The collection of paintings is inspired by Mr Lain's home county of Norfolk, where he lives with his wife Betty Lain and dog Robbie.

The artist said: 'The Norfolk countryside has such as special quality, with our wide skies but we're also blessed with wonderful villages and towns with a range of inspiring architecture. I'm never stuck for a subject to paint.'
