“I’m giving my life’s work away!” - a St Albans amateur artist has offered to sell his paintings to raise money for Ukraine relief efforts.

Ray Postill, 77, is hoping to donate money from over 250 pieces of original artwork he has in his possession.

He began painting in his spare time in his mid-50s, and over the years has painted in a range of styles - describing them as nostalgic, humorous and quirky.

Ray is keen to get the word out there about his project and start raising money: “In my mind, anyone who purchases a painting is making a donation to charity and in exchange they will be receiving a gift of the painting of their choice as a long term reminder of their generosity.”
