Just to give you some idea of the diversity of people who sit for me at the shopping centres I work in , mostly in the London area.

This portrait of these 2 charming ladies - mum & daughter - will be flying to Zimbabwe, as the mother is going back for a visit to that troubled country., I didn`t have to ask them to smile, they were chortling for the whole time it took me to do their portraits - about 45 minutes.

An interesting couple sat for me when I did portraits (& caricatures!) at a shopping centre in Farnborough, Hampshire. The beautiful, graceful lady is from Poland and her friend is from Afghanistan, he was amazedwhen I told him that I stayed in Kabul for 3 weeks in 1979 when it was a hippie\tourist stopping off point on the great route through the middle east to Asia.

Did this portrait of the great Jimi Hendrix last week to show at a shopping centre that I was promoting my work in over the weekend. Along came a man who said to me - `I used to know him`, turned out to be a record producer who worked with him in the 60`s. He also worked with Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and many others from those crazy days. This is why I like to get out of the studio, where I only have Radio 4 for company, and get out to busy places where one never knows who will pass by.
