Nearly 200 people visited the gallery in Mayfair. There were three night dedicated to celebrities, Prince's Trusts mentors and people from the financial world in London.
From the celebrities I really enjoyed meeting Eric Knowles (Antiques Road Show) and Julian Glover (actor) With both I had wonderful and fun conversations!
Amongst others in attendance were Sir Peter Blake, artist who famously designed the cover of the Beatles' Sgt Pepper's album (he said he enjoyed my painting!), Dame Diana Rigg, actress, Tamsin Egerton and Tallauh Riley, stars of the St Trinian’s film, Helen Worth, Gail from Coronation Street and Tracey Edwards, round-the-world yachtswoman.
This exhibition has given me another boost of energy and confidence to keep pursuing my dream. Both my paintings 'Family in the Park' and the portrait of Prince Charles were enjoyed by the viewers and were a focal point of conversation.
I have also met other incredible artists whom I hope to keep in touch with in the future.
Many thanks to Louis Gargour from LNG Capital who sponsored the exhibition!
