The Secret Artist Of NW5


At the end of 2013 I was made redundant from my publishing job of 30 years. Cushioned by redundancy pay, I was in no particular rush to find another job and wanted to enjoy my new freedom.

Knowing that I like big projects, my husband suggested I paint pictures of all the Grade II-listed buildings in Kentish Town, and I jumped at the idea. My working life has always involved working with words and, apart from a few short drawing and watercolour courses at City Lit, I have never had any formal training in art. But since childhood, I have enjoyed painting as a hobby, and I loved the idea of combining this with my interest in old buildings. The English Heritage website lists over 100 protected buildings in NW5, so I was going to be kept busy.
