I chose to paint Dalston icon William Gee Ltd as it stood directly opposite a previous painting I made of a cafe. The shop is in an area of London that has seen a huge amount of gentrification yet it is still standing. The shopfront takes you back to a different era. I chose the long, low shadows to add a sense of depth and emotion. It always looks like the shop is closed from the outside and I wanted to capture that with the dark, moody palette.
The painting was exhibited at the 157th Society of Women Artist's annual exhibition in 2018 at the Mall Galleries in London.
