An artist being featured in an Arts Trail for the first time is donating all profits from sales to charity.

Work titled 'Eath, Sea and Sky' from Jawad Saleem will be displayed at the Queens Arms on Orford Road during the Waltham Forest Arts Trail held from June 1 to June 16 with all profits going to Haven House Children's Hospice.

The 49-year-old from Waltham Forest took up photography seriously two years ago and currently works part time, but hopes to become a full-time artist in the future.

Mr Saleem said: "My friend and fellow photographer Stuart Moore had participated in the E17 Art Trail in 2017, and I was impressed by not only his photography but also the confidence he had as an artist in order to open himself up to live review/criticism from the members of public attending his exhibition.

"I chose the hospice as the charity I will donate to because as a parent there is nothing that affects me more than the thought of a child suffering.

"The amazing care and support this organisation provides not only for the children with life-limiting conditions but also for their family members is simply not highlighted or praised enough.

"If through my work I can help make the smallest difference by raising money for this great local charity I would be honoured.

"My work for the trail was inspired by a chance holiday to Snowdonia, Wales in late 2016 rewarded me with my first sighting of the milky way and the billion stars twinkling around it. It was breathtaking from that moment I was hooked. I now try and combine my love of landscape photography to incorporate the beauty of the sky above us.

"I believe the Art Trial embraces these characteristics through all of the diverse artistic projects being exhibited, and I’m extremely grateful to be part of the Art Trial 2019."
