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 2007, 2009 and 2010.

The portrait is of John Godfrey CBE, wearing his official robes as High Sheriff of Lincolnshire. He commissioned this portrait after seeing Escofet’s work in a previous BP Portrait Award exhibition. Escofet says: ‘I wanted to capture all the detail and gravitas of the costume but within a relaxed pose.’
