A Hidden Legacy

Shortlisted, Novel London Literary Festival 2019
My Work

"In pride of place the newly painted family portrait was carefully hung.  It portrayed the that the family who resided at Hawkins House had power, money and influence. The painting itself had the unmistakable style of the most celebrated artist of the day. 


Why, even the two slave children were dressed in opulence.


On further inspection the one thing the owner disliked about the painting was the child. She was positioned far too forward. And her gaze fell upon the viewer, not a hint of servitude in her eyes.


"Bloody Artist" 

he seethed as he walked away. "
