Local artist Karen Humpage has been raising funds for charity by painting house portraits.

“I started painting architecture after visiting London’s historic cemeteries, and was inspired to paint some of the ornate and crumbling monuments… I get just as much enjoyment from painting people’s homes, particularly those with period details and traditional brickwork,” said Karen, who has donated £5 from every commission to The Corner House Project in Wanstead, an initiative which supports the homeless.
