New business for Nailsea woman

DESPITE having a medical condition which can leave her housebound, a determined Nailsea woman has launched her own fine art company.
Samantha Dean, aged 42, suffers from fibromyalgia but continues to work from her home in Dorchester Close.
She was made redundant in August last year and due to her condition is limited as to what work she can do.
Some days are fine for Samantha, but some days she is in a great deal of discomfort and is cripplingly tired.
She launched her business with help from Clevedon Job Centre, not-for-profit business advice company Brave and the Enterprise Allowance Scheme.

The scheme allowed her to purchase the tools and raw materials she needs to work and earn.
She is now working up a portfolio of art to sell, with each piece taking about 16 hours to complete.
