Eric Cousans

Eric -Self portrait -no borders

Eric painted during his working years, but only on while holiday, when he went on week-long courses at, among others, Flatford Mill, Earnley Concourse, King's Lynn with Richard Cartwright and in Somerset with Barry Watkin.

Eric was in school during WWII and spent his two years of conscription in the RAF. On demob he took to professional football, playing for Doncaster, Walsall, Gillingham, Dover and Canterbury. During the 12 years he played at that level he had his leg broken twice, once by the England cricketer Freddy Trueman. When his football career ended, the Football Association paid for him to be trained in Chiropody and Physiotherapy and he set up business in Canterbury in 1958.

In 2001 Eric retired, having not missed a single day's work, something of which he is justifiably proud, and has been painting avidly ever since. He has been a keen member of the Canterbury Society of Art for many years.
