‘When life seems hard, the courageous do not lie down and accept defeat; instead, they are all the more determined to struggle for a better future’ words spoken by Her Majesty the Queen.

Painting this image of the Queen was an important way for me to reflect on her passing. I was constantly struck by how so much lay before this little girl with her dog, not dissimilar in age to my own children. What a life she has lead and what an incredible symbol she became, to hold us steady.
