When London's National Portrait Gallery started acquiring artwork by Hazel Soan in 2005, it was seen as an official endorsement of her skill and recognition of her life in art. Other collectors include Hilton Hotels, BBC Television, BP and Royal Caribbean, however her core group of collectors remains to this day to be private individuals. She has also built an enviable reputation as an author of stunning art books, often with an educational slant.
This exciting event to mark the launch of Hazel's 15th book will be held within a solo exhibition of her artwork comprising 80 beautiful pieces. Attendees will be able to meet Hazel herself, have a copy of 'How to Paint People Quickly' signed by her and find out first hand how this challenging subject can be made fun for anyone - quickly!
