Writer, Lexicographer & Poet
Heroes Exhibition at Lichfield Literature Festival, 1-4 March 2017
Working as the Illustrator in Residence at Lichfield Festival I was asked to add to the ‘Heroes’ series of illustrated portraits with a number of new pieces inspired by literary/heroes for the Literature Festival.
As a significant figure in Lichfield’s history this portrait of Dr. Johnson (1709-1784) references the bust created by Joseph Nollekens R.A. and pays homage to elements of Dr. Johnson’s life. This portrait is available as a A3 signed giclée print, with a limited edition of 25. Text includes the following details:Dr. Johnson, Writer | Lexicographer| Poet. All framed prints on display have been hand embellished with metallic acrylic.
