Essex has a reputation as the home of footballers’ wives, bling and the TV series Towie (The Only Way Is Essex). How much do you know about this oft-maligned English county? Helen Mirren — She may have played the Queen, but the Oscar-winning actress is pure Essex girl. Denise Van Outen — is another daughter Essex.
I am so pleased to be born here and proud to come from here and happy to return here every time. And most times I have a chance to get it down on paper. Captions for each of these images to follow. Enjoy the Essex exhibition - thank you.
