Celie Byrne studied painting and drawing at Edinburgh College of Art, the School of Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Stirling. Her work has been seen in group and solo exhibitions in Scotland.

The portrait shows Byrne’s teenage son Nathaniel in his bedroom. Nathaniel is playing one of his three treasured guitars while the walls have images he has torn from music magazines and newspapers. Byrne also wanted to include baby pictures, current posters and the globe lamp to symbolise his past, present and future.
