Phoebe has held four successful solo shows, which she curated personally. In 2013 she was selected to appear on the Sky Arts programme ‘Portrait Artist of the year’ produced in conjunction with the National Portrait Gallery. She has exhibited in the Royal Society of Portrait Painters annual exhibition three times; in 2015 showing her portrait of Carson from Downton Abbey, which is part of an exciting series of painting commissions documenting the making of the iconic ITV series.
Phoebe’s portrait for the Cholmondeley children at Houghton Hall was chosen for the BP Portrait Award 2018 exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. In 2019 she won the Burke’s Peerage Foundation Award for classical-inspired portraiture at the Royal society or Portraiture painters exhibition and was highly commended for the De Lazlo Award. She continues to exhibit regularly at renowned galleries in London and beyond and is due to have a solo show in New York this Autumn.
At any one time, Phoebe works on an eclectic mixture of commission and exhibition work. Right now she has many exciting portrait commissions on the go and two large landscape commissions due to go to China this summer. She is also finalising work for her solo show in New York due to take place in late Autumn. Phoebe also teaches a plein air workshop once a year at Villa Cetinale.
