Notting Hill Housing Trust
Artist in Residence 2011-12

As Artist in Residence at the Notting Hill Housing Trust I took as my subject the relationship between housing officers and their tenants, producing portraits that celebrate the mutual trust and respect that has been built up overtime.

It has been a wonderful opportunity to paint a diverse and interesting group of people and perhaps to challenge notions of who is entitled to
be the subject of a portrait.

In all my work I strive to capture that which silently unites us, common shared unspoken experiences that are stronger than our more apparent differences and I am very grateful for the generosity of everyone who took part in the project. It's very kind to let a stranger come and appropriate your image and make of it what they will.
