Adopting Gianni was one of the best things that ever happened to me.

AN ARTIST LIVING IN WEMBLEY PARK AND GIANNI HIS DOG

My art is inspired by the toys and the games I used to play with as a child. I used to think the colour blind test was a game and so I use that quite a lot. I often use it as a metaphor for religion. Just because other people don’t see what I see, that doesn’t mean that it’s not real for me, or for them.

Adopting Gianni was one of the best things that ever happened to me. He came into my life when I was going through a really tough time and was extremely ill. Four years later and we come to Wembley Park for a coffee every day. This is our place. Gianni attracts quite a lot of people because of his character – he’s extremely friendly.
