Born in Barcelona, Miriam Escofet moved to England and gained a BA (Hons) degree in 3D design from Brighton School of Art. She has had solo shows in London and Paris. Her work was included in the BP Portrait Award in 2007 and 2009.

The portrait is of Escofet's friend, Gillian, whom she had wanted to paint for some time. Escofet wanted to capture Gillian's individual style typified by her collection of vintage clothes and artefacts. The initial sittings took place in Gillian's home in natural light.
