A very happy looking Kerri, on being presented with ‘Daily Greatness’, her surprise birthday present!

Thrilled to have delivered my latest bespoke Shelf-Portrait ‘Morris Minor’ to the lovely Mel 🙂
I so enjoyed painting this one – it has some favourites of mine in, including a Duane Michals catalogue from an exhibition in Oxford I saw, a collection of Roger McGough poetry and, of course, the obligatory iconic Observers book.
