I am an artist who paints in watercolour and acrylics and I also draw in coloured pencil.
I am currently exploring a new watercolour series of memories I have of growing up in my hometown of Highbury and Islington including a homage to my favourite football team Arsenal FC.
I am recreating places that are no longer there, and along this journey I am meeting people who are reminiscing the same happy memories that I have.
There is still a lot more to come. I love hearing everyone’s memories and stories.
I’ll be donating the profits of all the sales I make of the Kroenke protest painting to the National Kidney Foundation - which was a request by the photographer of that brilliant image ‘AFC_GLEN’ on Twitter I just want to make sure that he gets the credit for the image - I only painted it - he captured it.
