Slightly Foxed Issue 82 (June 2024)

Cover Artist: Slightly Foxed Issue 82, Daisy Sims-Hilditch, ‘Afternoon Light, Beach Huts at Wells’

Daisy Sims-Hilditch is a portrait and landscape painter. A keen advocate of plein air painting, she is best known for the way in which she interprets light with her brushwork. From an early age, her work has been recognized by the UK’s most prestigious awards.

At 18, a portrait of her grandfather, My Grandpa, was selected out of 18,000 entries to be exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery as part of the Sunday Telegraph’s Art Prize. She has since exhibited at the BP Portrait Awards, the Royal Society of British Artists, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Philip Mould Gallery, and she has had sell-out solo exhibitions at the Portland Gallery. Her work hangs in prestigious private collections including those of Oxford colleges.

Last autumn Daisy was selected to exhibit as part of the Ruth Borchard Self Portrait prize at the Atkinson Museum.
