How one small postcard can lead to bigger things…

Uncategorized

In 2019 I was asked to decorate a postcard for a charity auction in Dulwich. I painted Edward Alleyn one night (I based it on an old oil painting) with a tiny brush and it sold. A couple of months later, I heard the call out for a local artist to make artworks for a new building in Timberyard reflecting the history of Deptford. Representing figures from the past is hard ! You can’t photograph them! But I really liked the thought that new residents would step out of their modern flats and walk past my pieces, and be reminded of Deptford’s rich past. So I sent a proposal containing portraits of Deptford figures, and photography, and was lucky to be selected. I am now painting more mini portraits onto wood. Moral of the story? Sometimes those charitable deeds reward you later on.
