Ishbel Myerscough

Collection by Flowers Gallery


Ishbel studied at Glasgow and the Slade Schools of Art; she won the National Portrait Gallery's annual BP Portrait Award competition in 1995 and as a result was commissioned to paint Helen Mirren's portrait for the collection and subsequently Sir Willard White. She paints entirely from life and usually has numerous sittings with her subjects. Ishbel Myerscough is interested in all the things, in fact, that we edit out of our body images.
