West Greenwich Library Talk 9th June 2017

The 2 videos below are a recording of the talk I gave at West Greenwich Library in June this year. I hope they give an idea of my background, the city life that shaped me and what led me to become so passionate about painting the Thames. The recordings are by Irene Butcher and Delia Scales. Irene filmed the introduction with the jazzy music and did a brilliant job in editing. Delia, who did most of the filming, admits that as a first attempt at filming it's a bit shaky in places with some unusual angles and close ups but I think they capture the gist of it all! Peter Garretty mastered the mysteries of uploading videos! My thanks to a great team and also to all those people that attended the talk and I hope it will be of interest now to many that didn't. Thank you also to West Greenwich Library for their generous support, they truly are a fantastic local resource.

Just found out that I'm in this months' edition of Vogue, sadly not for my great fashion sense but for an image of London featuring alongside an article by Cristina Ruiz...
