Maryam Foroozanfar studied illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York. Her work has been included in the annual exhibitions of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters (2008, 2009) and in the BP Portrait Award Exhibition in 2004, 2007 and 2008.
The portrait is of Foroozanfar’s friend Christina and was made in a series of sittings at the artist’s studio. Foroozanfar says the aim of the portrait was to ‘capture Christina’s directness as a prominent personality trait.’
