Claire Falconer – Fine Art

Irish Painter & Filmmaker


Sky Portrait Artist Season 3 episode 5


I submitted a Donegal Self Portrait to the Sky Portrait Artist of the year award and was selected to feature in Season 3 of the show which filmed at the Wallace Collection Museum in central London. Somewhere under four hours were allowed to paint a surprise sitter, the vibrant and lovely singer Katie Kissoon.

A highly pressured but amazing experience no doubt. Katie, Frank Skinner, the crew and team were wonderful.  I contentedly returned to a very peaceful studio afterwards!
