Working From The Model



Here is a short video which will be playing on large screens at the annual conference of the National Cancer Research Institute in Liverpool this weekend.

All of the Breast Cancer LIFE paintings and drawings will be on display, and I'll be giving a short presentation on Beauty, Femininity & Self-Image on the Sunday.

It feels like a fitting conclusion to the Breast Cancer LIFE project for me; an opportunity to see all of the paintings and drawings together for the last time before they go off to their buyers, and a chance to speak with cancer specialists about issues surrounding cancer treatment and self-image.

I'm very grateful that the project has given me the opportunity to draw and paint so many women from life, like Stephanie – shown above.

I'd like to thank my sponsors for the project, Chris Rudge Renewable Power and Dorset Cereals, and NCRI for inviting me to such a prestigious event.

Fabulous! The energy of the work has affected so many, and will reverberate for years. Congratulations to you and all the models and sponsors. It's a funny thing, what a little emulsion on a surface can do in the right time and place.
