Painting Nicola Coughlan

Nicola Coughlan
Sky Arts
Portrait Artist of the Week
I am thrilled to announce that on Sunday 21st February 2021 I will be the featured artist on Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Week – Season 3 and will be painting the fabulous Nicola Coughlan!
It has been a slightly surreal few days being in discussion with the lovely team at Storyvault films about this whole situation and I am truly honoured to be given this opportunity.

Nicola Coughlan is best known for her portrayal of Claire in the hit Channel 4 comedy “Derry Girls” and most recently as Lady Penelope Featherington in Netflix’s smash-hit costume drama Bridgerton which debuted last Christmas.

I am a huge fan of both these shows having watched Derry Girls multiple times and devouring the entire first season of Bridgerton in two days!

Having watched the first two seasons of Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the week I have immensely enjoyed the feeling of community among a global audience of artists as well as the interesting and lively discussions between artist and sitter.

I await next Sunday with a combination of excitement and nerves! 


How to watch

The event will be streamed on Sky TV’s Facebook page live between 10:00-14:00 

Alternatively you can tune in to the channel Sky Arts, available on Freeview, for the final hour between 13:00-14:00
