Hello everyone,

I've been working alongside my friend and colleague Dick Graham on a project with Meet Me At The Albany:

We've been documenting their project Meet Me At Lewisham Homes through art. We've seen some other amazing artists make incredible artworks with Lewisham residents, and produced our own work that explores this unique and interesting story and journey.

There's a celebration opening event happening tomorrow at Deptford Lounge, for the exhibition. It's called Meet Me On Tour, and I'll be running an interactive watercolour table, while Dick will be a "live drawing" wandering artist. Come along to experience this and other interesting and unique goings on.

All the wonderful artworks will be on display, we hope to see you!

The exhibition continues until April 25th.
