Hero Johnson undertook a postgraduate diploma in fine art at Cyprus College of Art with further studies at the Heatherley School of Fine Art, Chelsea. Her work has been seen in group exhibitions in the UK including the annual exhibitions of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters (2008, 2013-17), winning the Society’s Changing Faces Commission Prize 2015.

The portrait is of the artist’s friend and fellow artist, Tabitha, with her young daughter, Gilda. Tabitha won the Liverpool Art Prize in 2013 for her work documenting her experience of infertility and the eventual birth of Gilda. Johnson says: ‘Gilda has been the subject of an ongoing artwork since pre-conception and I wanted to contribute to this documentation and to celebrate their story.’
