Me outside Battersea Arts Centre with my submitted self-portrait
Here is my final painting of Mishal Hussein, a British newsreader and journalist for BBC Television and BBC Radio. She is also one of the main presenters on BBC World News. She was a wonderful sitter and a great inspiration on the day!
I was extremely grateful and happy that Mishal chose my painting to take with her, it was the best outcome for me! She looked so beautiful and elegant. I hope I captured both her softness and strength simultaneously.
I was thrilled to be one of the three shortlisted artists in the episode. Thanks to all the judges and support from the public audience on the day.
