Peter Goodfellow undertook a BA in illustration at Central School of Art. His work has been seen in numerous exhibitions in the UK, Germany and USA. He has undertaken public and commercial commissions for the V&A, Penguin Books and the BBC among other clients.

This self-portrait includes a variety of collaged portraits of the artist’s parents. He says: ‘I wanted to record my parents’ lives when they were young and glamorous, before and up to the point I was born. I owe them so much and this way I carry them with me always.’
