Graffiti artist

I spotted this article on the news today:

Quite recently a Banksy was removed by taking a section of wall from an unsuspecting house in Nottingham. Apparently it was sold for a six-figure sum to a gallery owner in Scotland and is now being restored. Amazing that Banksy artwork has become so valuable – maybe it’s the intrigue and the anonymity of his work that makes him such a sought after artist.

This photo is from a skate park on the Southbank. The whole area is adorned with graffiti but I’d definitely call it artwork. In the twenty five years that I have visited that area, it’s never been removed. Perhaps they gave up or perhaps it’s just fitting and suits the place, so it’s left. I like it myself and would liken it to Pop Art.

My name's Anna and I decided to write a blog following an accident last year. I will never regain the full use of my right hand and an operation led to additional, ongoing complications. This is about my struggles following the accident and the challenges of trying to save the use I still have in my hand. It’s a story about my product and why it appeared in my head one day because of my traumatic experiences. How I took that positive vision and worked towards bringing it to life. The challenges of putting it together and getting it to the market whilst still undergoing debilitating, ongoing treatment. It's a journey you can share with me. I'm not there yet...
