Aly & Mick - 3D virtual exhibition by Ancora Art

Aly & Mick

Collection of works from Aly & Mick Smith

Mick and Aly have been together for 18 years and their passion and love for not only art, but each other is truly admirable. Aly, originally from Norfolk but moved to Newcastle in 1988, Aly explained her past her struggles with Bi polar, other mental health issues and how art has aided her in managing these challenges.“I find it hard to ask for help - going straight from a paid job, to ESA and then universal credit and having to use a food bank ourselves I found that really hard”.

Mick, born and bred in Newcastle (Denton Burn to be exact) has been an artist for many years and has been involved in various local projects. From working with homeless people, to the probation service and putting on exhibitions across the North East. However much of that changed recently.

Mick had a bonfire accident back in March 2020 which caused him to have partial loss of sight in both of his eyes. Mick spent months in and out of hospitals whilst they worked to regain his sight. Mick’s grit and determination enabled him to recover much of his vision, however this impacted his ability to practice art in a substantial way. Although Mick’s accident left him unable to perform his former portrait and more detailed pieces, it opened up a new opportunity for Mick to explore landscape and abstract works.
