From 1000’s of entries, I was delighted to be chosen to take part in Portrait Artist of the Year 2021. It was an amazing experience, both exciting and scary, but one I’ll never forget.

We were given 4 hours to complete a portrait and the competition was fierce. My sitter was the renowned space scientist, Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock who confided that her sparkly necklace contained a capsule of moondust.

I couldn’t be more thrilled when she chose my portrait to take home with her.

Huge thanks to all involved.
