Matt Mockridge, Cricket Umpire
This was a commission. The Cumnor House School 1st XI Cricket Team in 2011 presented this batik painting as a 'thank you' present to Matt Mockridge, the Deputy Head, for the many successful years he was the umpire of their inter-school matches.
I was Head of Art at Cumnor House School for 28 years and watched many of those matches.
