I’m delighted that this portrait of me, taken by the very gifted David Creedon, has been shortlisted for the Hennessy Portrait Prize 2017. It will hang, among nineteen other extraordinary  works, in the National Gallery until 25th of February 2018. The winner of the prize will be announced tomorrow evening and will receive a prize of €15,000. The winning artist will also be awarded a commission worth €5,000 to produce a portrait for inclusion in the National Portrait Collection.
