An art fair featuring the work of people who have suffered brain injuries raised £4,814 for Haggerston-based charity Headway East London on Thursday.
Camden artist Tony Brooks, 52, was hit by a car on his way home from school as a teenager and survived a brain injury which affected his mobility, speech, and vision.
He began drawing when he became a member of Headway East London.
Tony said: "My artwork helps me to concentrate and control my hand. I like to draw horses and animals."
He sells his artwork and said: "It gives me some independence, pride and confidence to do something for myself as I can't do much else."
The art fair took place at the Camden offices of London Law firm Osbornes Law.
