This life size pastel portrait of Brigitte Bardot was a commision for
"Le Pot Lyonnaise" a French restaurant in South West London. I decided to read about Brigitte Bardot's life before painting the image which helped me to capture her personality and compassionate spirit. In her words:
"It was only when I began to devote myself to animals that I blossomed completely.........it has given my life true meaning"
