A few years ago, I first met Max Walker at a filming of a TV series Passion to Profession produced by my husband, John Hipwell.
We both maintained a relationship with Max through other projects. Our meeting ‘office’ was at the cafe in Chapel Street. After breakfast, Max would bring out his mind mapping skills, a visually graphic way to present ideas and concepts. I loved his colourful drawings and saw them as artistic expressions.
With this experience in mind, I asked Max if he could sit for me at the same cafe. John Hipwell joined me to record and film the process of what was to be a shaped cut out portrait painting. Once again, the coffee cups were ordered as I began to draw Max within this familiar urban setting.
