Nicky Philipps studied at City and Guilds of London Art School and Studio Cecil-Graves. Her work has been seen in numerous exhibitions in London including the BP Portrait Award, 2005. The National Portrait Gallery commissioned her recent portrait of Prince William and Prince Harry for the Collection.

The portrait is of Paddy Renouf, a friend of Philipps and an aspiring artist. Philipps asked him to sit for her when they met at a dinner party. She says: ‘I had the most fun I ever had painting this portrait ... he never stopped talking, but is as interesting and informative as he is a character.'
