Narrative
David Makinson (58) lives in Hindley, Wigan with wife Christine. He has one son, Giles (29).
David was a Barnardo’s boy fostered at age one. He was born with a complex congenital heart condition – Tetralogy of Fallot – and to date has had two major open-heart surgeries and four ICD (Implantable Cardiac Defibrillators). He also has Rheumatoid Arthritis.
David took up painting in January 2018 as a stress relief from living with complex, life-long medical conditions. All sales of his paintings are donated to Somerville Heart Foundation, a registered charity who offer invaluable support to young people and adults living with lifelong complex congenital heart issues.
David specialises in painting people and particularly favours bold colour and Art Deco styles.
