LGBTQ+ artist Sarah Jane Moon‘s portrait Nicole & Kai has been included in the Royal Society of Portrait Painters‘ Annual Exhibition, which runs at Mall Galleries, London from September 16 to 26.

Sarah Jane Moon, a talented LGBTQ+ artist whose work explores identity, sexuality and gender presentation as well as interrogating formal painterly concerns, describes her portrait Nicole & Kai as ‘a portrait of two wonderfully creative women who live in Amsterdam and are friends of mine through the queer community.’
