Charcoal on paper

Teaching at the school was a positive step in the aftermath of the horrific fire at Grenfell Tower that is on the doorstep of Oxford Gardens Primary School. It was all that I could do, give my skills and teach from the heart.

One of the first feelings of emotion was the horror of the fire and the strange juxtapositioning of the children hopscotching in the playground, running round and playing games. Those memories are the starting point of drawings and paintings. This is a sketch made of charcoal, and felt tip pen.
