I was really stoked to be invited to paint at the Moseley School of Art, having just recently moved back home to Birmingham at the end of 2019. It was a quiet day as we were on the cusp of the Covid-19 lockdown and we weren’t sure if the event would be able to go ahead, but around 40-50 people arrived to join the Soul City Arts team.

Painting alongside Elph-One and old Birmingham Master, Zuke, I was really nervous as this was my first Live Paint event for a good few years, but I was made really welcome. It’s good to be pushed out of your comfort zone sometimes and its given me the impetus to keep at it. Despite the lockdown I have been getting creative again and am really grateful for the opportunity to participate at the event.
