Philip Renforth trained in fine art and works as an occupational therapist. He has won Northern Arts and Southern Arts artist awards and his work was included in the BP Portrait Award Exhibition 2007.

The portrait shows Renforth’s nephew Joe, at the age of eleven with his grandfather Philip aged eighty-one. Renforth was struck by the fact that they were of similar height although one was looking forward at the beginning of life and the other was reflecting on seventy years of experience. The sitters share a particularly close relationship.
