A SUDBROOK artist was ‘honoured’ to have been chosen to be one of the official artists to paint the Queen’s Jubilee.
Professional artist Haidee-Jo Summers was selected to be one of 20 artists in the UK invited to capture events as they unfold in the Thames Jubilee Pageant on Sunday.
She was positioned on Thames Bridge with the other artists when the pageant took place during Sunday’s live procession and, as the Queen’s barge passed underneath, was able to create a memorable image.
Haidee, who specialises in oil paintings, was delighted to get the call from the BBC.
She said: “I was told that Her Majesty The Queen was really keen that artists would be able to capture the day.
“To be on the Millennium Bridge overlooking the Thames on the day of the Jubilee Pageant trying to capture the boats and ceremony in oil paints on such a big day for celebration was just the most incredible thing.”
