SOCIETY OF WOMEN ARTISTS - 2012
This feature appeared in the Autumn 2012 edition of the Society of Women Artists Newsletter. I was pleased to be selected this year for my second year running, when I showed the two paintings above.
UNVEILING OF PROF GEOFF WHITTY'S PORTRAIT
12TH DECEMBER 2010
INSTITUTE OF EDUCATION, UNIVERSITY OF LONDON
I was honoured to be asked to paint Prof Whitty's portrait for the occasion of his retirement from his post as Director of the Institute of Education, University of London. The portrait was unveiled on 12th December by Lady Elizabeth Vallence, in front of Prof Whitty, his family and members of Council. Here are some photographs of the event:

Prof Dylan Wiliam, former Deputy Director of the Institute of Education wrote to say: "I think the portrait is absolutely stunning. It captures perfectly both Geoff's penetrating intelligence, and also his sense of humour, but also the portrait has a great deal of warmth. I can't think of the words to say exactly what I feel about the portrait—someone once said "Words do not reflect the world, not because there is no world, but because words are not mirrors"—but the portrait is a wonderful and generous illustration of the complexity of the man."
14th October to 10th November 2010
Having found inspiration in each other’s work, Loli CARDENOSO and Trinidad BALL have created a collection that reflects this cross pollination. The result is an exhibition in which 2D and 3D artwork bounce of each other.
