Professional artist, Janice Sylvia Brock, whose work changes hands for nearly a quarter of a million pounds andhangs in the Whitehouse, is hosting aWonderful Women Dinnertomorrow, with typical generosity and respect for the efforts of others.

Janice, who has been disabled by Still's Disease (a very aggressive form of arthritis), has battled the condition throughout her life. Through annual operations and a daily cocktail of drugs she continues to produce art which is vibrant and full of joy, from her famous ‘big-bottomed gals' in Barbados to her new collection inspired by Modigliani; ‘Oval Faces'. She has spent the last four and a half months painting four huge murals as a commission by the Nirvana Spa in Sindlesham, grasping the brush between her two crippled hands and being lifted on to a gantry every day to reach high enough.

Despite being internationally acclaimed and having work displayed at the Saatchi Gallery, Janice's focus remains resolutely down to earth and four years ago she set up this annual dinner to honour the ladies she admires. Janice explains: "This dinner is to honour women both professional and non-professional who make a difference. One of our members is voted that year's winner and they get a trophy to take home for twelve months. We have pastoral workers, teachers, fellow artists and therapists. Anyone who puts in the hours to change lives, and our membership is growing all the time."

Janice is available for interview or you are welcome to send a photographer to the event
