With the support of The Cross Trust I was able to complete The Drawing Year, a 15 month postgraduate course in observational drawing at the Royal Drawing School. I would like to say a huge thank you to The Cross Trust as the financial help allowed me to immerse myself in the classes which my drawing practice immensely benefited from. Living and studying in London, I was able to access the vast artistic resources of the galleries, museums and libraries. I also found a wonderful community at the School. I’m very grateful to The Cross Trust for enabling this experience.
