James Lloyd in conversation with Anna McNay

Heatherleys Online: James Lloyd in Conversation with Anna McNay

The Heatherley Guest Lecturer programme continues with the fifth in a series of online in conversation events with artists (Zoom link below). Portrait painter James Lloyd speaks about his work to art writer and journalist Anna McNay.

In conversation with McNay, Lloyd will discuss his career, from his BP Portrait Award win to today, considering his different approaches to commissioned and non-commissioned portraits, as well as to some of the small heads he paints ‘for himself’. During the conversation, Lloyd will elucidate his process and share stories of some of his more challenging commissions.
