I was thrilled to be invited to paint an A5 size painting depicting ‘Modern Life’ for the Secret Auction, in aid of fundraising for Southover and Wallands School Art Departments in Lewes.
I chose to paint young people on their phone walking along the high street in oil paint on canvas paper.
Please bid if you would like to own mine or one of the paintings
