Water colour portrait study of Ms Phyll Opoku ( Lady Phyll) Her Story Told: Lady Phyll @ladyphyll is co founder of @ukblackpride She is caring for the African/Caribbean community to have the same rights as the white LGBTQ’s. She’s editor of ‘Sista!’, columnist of @divamagazine and knows what it is to be downplayed time and time again. She fights for human rights, acceptance and visibility of the African/Caribbean community with love, dignity and pride. Watercolour after photographer @kofipaintsil for Gay Times. I am honoured that MsPhyll Opoku agreed to work with me on my prototype project for my art business. Her portrait in oil is almost done.
