Binny Mathews

Binny Portrait artist of the year series 2022

“I love people. I am intrigued by an individual’s internal landscape versus their public presentation. This combination adds up to an authentic expression of character which then makes for a real likeness.”

Binny has been fortunate to have exhibited numerous times at The National Portrait Gallery and The RA Summer Exhibition in London. Her work is in private and public collections around the world including Apple International, The National Trust and that of King Charles III. I received The Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Award for figurative painting. 

“I can honestly say that Binny is one of the best (portrait painters) working in Britain today” – Dr Alison Smith, Chief Curator of The National Portrait Gallery

When she’s not working on a portrait commission, Binny paints still lifes and landscapes.
