We Are Extraordinary / Waltham Forest Borough of Culture 2019

A new book to celebrate inspiring people from Waltham Forest.

We are Extraordinary is a brand new illustrated hardback book that will be distributed to every school and library in Waltham Forest in November 2019. It tells the stories of some of the inspiring people who have lived and worked in Waltham Forest, encouraging children in the borough today to aim high in their ambitions and to fulfil their potential. 

Co-created with local publisher and writer Ellie Levenson and with school children in Leytonstone, the book includes the stories of local heroes such as Michael Nyman and Talvin Singh creating new genres of music, Lutalo Muhammad winning Olympic medals in taekwondo, Fanny Craddock inspiring the nation to cook, Laurie Cunningham, David Beckham and Harry Kane playing football in our clubs and parks, Frederick Bremer pushing boundaries with internal combustion engines,  Alfred Wells and William Britain Jr manufacturing market leading toys, Clement Attlee, William Morris and Jenny Hammond seeking to improve people’s lives, Harry Beck reinventing the map for London Underground, Grayson Perry pushing artistic boundaries, Tom Hood amusing the nation with his verse and illustration, Victoria Cross holder George Mitchell, Alfred Hitchcock scaring generations of film fans and Matthew Bourne bringing ballet to new audiences. 

Waltham Forest has had huge amounts of talent in its homes, schools and workplaces, and continues to do so and this book aims to inspire a brand new generation to be extraordinary.

Windows I and II, Linocut Mural, Walthamstow High Street

The Walthamstow High Street wall art project has been installed!

You can find the new linocut windows on the corner of the High Street on Carisbrooke Road. 

Window one 'Sunburst' is an abstract view looking over the local area and window two is a sycamore tree as seen on Pretoria Avenue, and these trees fill the roads adjacent to the work.

A six month process from start to finish - huge thank you to the St James Street Big Local for the residents art grant and to LBWF High Street Ward for planning and funding. 

The wall has been transformed from its previous derelict state and I'm now seeking a new wall/ area to tackle :)

A permanent display.
