Runima Kakoty

Artistic and theatrical worlds came face to face when Barnsley artist Runima Kakoty met James Bond at the celebrity studded Golden jubilee event at the Naval and Military Club, St James's, London.

Runima sold several of the 14 works she exhibitted to raise hundreds of pounds for UNICEF.

"I visited Rajasthan earlier this year and painted a number of paintings of Rajasthani palaces and scenes.I offered some of these paintings and was delighted that they were accepted. It was a star studded event but meeting Pierce Brosnan was wonderful!"

Three of her work were on display at the Chelsea Open art exhibition in London at the same time.
