Nathlyn has been commissioned to create art work for the Games

Nathlyn Baptiste has been painting in her Stratford studio for the last six years.

She feels very close to the area and draws much of her inspiration from her surroundings.

With huge changes taking place on her doorstep 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.

In 2008 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 Games.
