A dark and rainy winter afternoon last year. Liverpool Cathedral is a complicated and difficult building to draw. I was in my hometown to show paintings inĀ ‘Who is My Neighbour?’, an exhibition about migration and refugee issues.

River Mersey – Three Queens

River Mersey, Three Queens event May 2015 - Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria and Quenn Mary 2
The 175th anniversary of the Cunard Line, Liverpool, May 25th – the three ships Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria and Queen Mary II meet in the River Mersey and perform aquatic manoeuvres neither seen nor attempted before.

It was a sight to behold – a strange and unexpectedly emotional experience. Many scousers, including me, wept with pride.
