How Holly&Lil came to be at the National Portrait Gallery

h&l met gallery

Holly&Lil’s Pirate Harness is one of their most popular products and now it can be viewed by thousands at the National Portrait Gallery – here is how.

Henrietta called to buy her puglet Ollie a new UK harness and at the same time told us her wonderful news – both she and her Hubby, Tim Hall, are artists and have been included in the BP portrait award list that will be exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery exhibition. 26th June to 21st September.

This is Tim’s painting and Ollie is featured in his Pirate harness.

Then we spoke and she explained she has spent years painting the great chefs of the World; (at the moment she is working on a portrait of René Redzepi of Noma in Copenhagen – repeatedly voted the best restaurant in the world. That is who Tim shows her painting on her easel).

Henrietta’s 7ft painting of James Martin also made the list; it’s the first time a husband and wife have both made the list in the 25 years of the competition.

Congratulations to Henrietta and Tim – we can’t wait to see the painting at the Gallery.
