I made this painting, Best of British, as an antidote to the chaos caused by Brexit. In the uncertain times in the run up to the first Brexit deadline in March 2019, I fell out of love with my nation. I painted Brexit Forecast to express my sadness and frustration. Painting Best of British was a way to remind me of 50 things I love about Britain.

British things to be proud of

I'm not especially patriotic. But to be from the same country as Shakespeare, David Attenborough, Charles Darwin, the Beatles, and Morecambe & Wise seems like something to be proud of.

A nation that had the foresight to create a National Health Service (NHS), invented the steam locomotive, still performs ancient folk dances, and gets excited about an impenetrably beautiful and gentlemanly game like cricket is something not to be sneezed at. A game that stops for tea! If you're British you'll understand.

I have illustrated 50 of the things I love about Britain - perhaps some of your favourite things are shown on my painting?
