Commission a Portrait. Portraits of the Beatles, Mick Jagger and Prince Charles by Gavin Oram. Passport Officer changes Campion to Champion. St Edmund Campion.

My son was christened Gavin William Campion, as he was born on Saint Edmund Campion's feast day, 1 December. 

St Edmund was one of the forty English martyrs who were hung, drawn and quartered at Tyburn in 1581. 

Recently Gavin had to renew his passport, and when the new one arrived, the passport authorities had renamed him Gavin William Champion, so he is leaving it at that!

Gavin paints in his spare time and has always meant to have an exhibition,  but has never got round to it. He does portraits on commission , which he fits around his day job. He likes to meet his subjects but can work from a photo of your choice, in the colour and size specified, or leave it to him to decide.
