My work on show at the exhibition.
Iam very pleased to be part of the exhibition which finally puts Leyton on the arts map. Walthamstow has a number of successful arts projects and groups including the E17 Art Trail and I am part of that each year.  Leytonstone has its Arts Trail and Festival, but we have been lacking here in Leyton for galleries or arts projects. I hope it's a sign of more things to come.
