On the 18th July 2012 in Rye, East Sussex he carried the Olympic torch at 9.51am on the A259 New Winchelsea Road to #61 Winchealsea Road.

All his friends and family came to cheer him along with his trusty Westy Warriors.

I know you must be wondering exactly how he creates such marvellous paintings?

It would be great if he had a website where you could view videos of him creating each picture and the reason why he made each one.
