This painting is a portrait of me and my dad who had been diagnosed with leukaemia in June of last year. This picture was taken in July on my birthday the month after he was diagnosed. He was very close to not pulling through in hospital but thankfully he did. I decided to paint a portrait of this powerful image because no one inspires me more than he does now after what he’s been through in the last year. He is my hero and a true inspiration to everyone that knows him.
