I am very happy to have been selected for exhibition in the BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery this year, and am thrilled to have been short-listed for the prizes. 

My entry is a portrait of my niece, Eliza, painted in acrylic on board. The exhibition runs for June 18th to September 20th and admission is free. More info can be found here http://www.npg.org.uk/whatson/bp-portrait-award/exhibition 

My picture, along with the other short-listed entries and the exhibition itself, received some press attention (see links below)

The reproduction of the image is pretty good. I’m looking forward to seeing the other works in the gallery and meeting other artists.
