TWO artists are brushing up against the best in the businesses after being chosen to display their work in prestigious gallery spaces.
Sarah Graham from Hitchin, a recent graduate of North Herts College, has produced a piece of work for this year's Harrods Christmas window display.
Enjoying a successful career painting glowing, bubblegum, pop art, she was commissioned to create a work based on The Wizard Of Oz which shoppers can admire at the Knightsbridge store throughout the festive season.
"As a lifelong fan of the film and story, it was one of the most enjoyable pieces I've ever painted," she said.

Up the road in Piccadilly you can see the work of ten-year-old Dylan Cox from Kingshott Primary School, also in Hitchin, whose work A Three-Eyed Elephant Head Monster hangs next to that of Quentin Blake in the Royal Academy Of Arts.
Dylan won the chance to have his art shown at the prestigious gallery when he beat 15,000 entries to be named Sightsavers Junior Painter Of The Year last month.

Professor Maurice Cockrill, keeper of the collection, said: "This three-eyed elephant head monster was certainly one of the most idiosyncratic images we saw - extremely inventive and varied and has a full range of rather startling colours and shapes."
Dylan's picture can be seen for free in the How I See Myself exhibition until November 18.
