2013-08-29 00:00

HILTON artist Heather Gourlay- Conyngham is still in shock after winning the first ever Sanlam Private Investments (SPI) National Portrait Award for her nude male portrait entitled A Young Man.

“They sort of misled me,” she said, “they encouraged me to come to Cape Town for the awards by telling me I was one of three finalists … but at the ceremony I realised, from what they said, that there were no other finalists and that I was the winner … I just feel very lucky.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
