'MIRROR MIRROR' COMMISSION FOR THE BEANEY GALLERY
I am incredibly grateful and overjoyed to have been commissioned for a portrait by the historic Beaney Gallery at the heart of Canterbury, for their ‘Mirror Mirror’ project, in partnership with The National Portrait Gallery and Arts Council England. Very excited to get started and have the honour of working alongside some amazingly talented artists to help this project come to life. I’m lucky enough to be under the expert tutelage of artist Sarah Spencer NEAC to help me through this commission. More information on the project can be found on the gallery website, link below:
