Isobel Peachey is an award-winning painter and printmaker, born in Lancashire. She is primarily known for her portraiture - exhibiting in London and across the UK, including the National Portrait Gallery, the Mall Galleries and Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair. Her works feature internationally in private collections - notably Cunard, The Royal Society of Arts, St Paul’s Cathedral and The Ruth Borchard Collection.

Isobel’s commissions include Her Majesty the Queen, HRH Princess Anne and The Reverend Lucy Winkett - the first woman priest appointed at St Paul’s Cathedral. A winner of the BP Portrait Travel Award, she studied historical reenactors in Switzerland and Belgium resulting in an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in 2010. The inspiration behind her work is the importance of identity, how we perceive ourselves, how we wish to be perceived and our place in history.
