When did you first attend the SODEM protest outside Parliament and why did you come? 

July 2019.

Roughly how old are you?


How frequently did you come and when was the last time you attended?

Twice last year [2019], in July and August. 

How far from Westminster do you live and what was your travelling time?

I live in Birmingham. My total travel time door-to-door was 3 hours.

What’s your favourite memory?

Meeting Steve, and all the other lovely people!

Tell me your story

I came to support SODEM, but also to take reference photos for a narrative portrait painting of Steve Bray, which I’m currently working on. It will hopefully be finished in August. I am hoping to enter it for the BP Portrait Award and Royal Academy Summer Exhibition next year. Both are notoriously difficult to get selected for. But this will be an unusual and possibly controversial (Brexiteers will hate it lol!) painting of a very topical subject. So I’m hopeful…🙂
