Matthew Lyons is a Nottinghamshire-based portrait artist,
living and working in Beeston.
Matthew has started a new project, painting group portraits of the staff and volunteers at Treetops Hospice, find out more here!
During the 'People of Beeston' exhibition Matthew was approached by Treetops Hospice about painting a selection of portraits to mark their 40th anniversary. The paintings will be unveiled at the hospice's 40th anniversary celebration later this year.
