An artist's impression
Artist Nathlyn Baptiste is trying to make sense of the dramatic developments that are taking place in her native Stratford, with a brush and a stroke she is moving with the changes.
Nathlyn Baptiste has been painting in her Stratford studio for the last six years. She feels very close to Stratford and draws much of her inspiration from her surroundings.
With huge changes taking place in Stratford Nathlyn is really beginning to see and feel how the Olympics is transforming the area and she is becoming increasingly excited with the prospect of a new and improved Stratford.
A year and a half ago Nathlyn was commissioned by Lloyds TSB, one of the official London Olympic sponsors, to produce a collection of Olympic art works. Her current project is to paint portraits of five British athletes who won gold in the Beijing Olympics.
