Art Celebration!

I'm having an Arts Show and Studio Sale on 26 November. It has become a show of appreciation for all the work I have been blessed to create over the years and also a celebration of the people I know who support me and my Art.  If you are local message me for full details - you are most welcome.

So thankful to have my work all round the country this Christmas. Firstly my portrait in the Zurich Portrait Prize Show in Dublin , then my self portrait  piece "Hope in the Shadows" ( pictured) selected for the Royal Ulster Academy in Belfast and a wide selection of portraits included in the Hambly and Hambly Christmas Show in Enniskillen and finally a selection of my Imaginative work on show at Common Grounds, University Avenue, Belfast

Truly Blessed!

I have watched the Enlighten competition on the Hambly and Hambly site with interest, where Artists send in work in response to other Artists. I decided to enter Enlighten 13 and was one of the winners! Excited to take part in the mixed show in June and to be connected with a wonderful Gallery

 Sky Portrait Artist of the Week!                                  


How exciting! - to receive a call live on Sky Arts TV from Tai-Shan Shierenberg.  My gouache portrait of the lovely Melanie Blatt (All Saints) won this week's Sky Portrait Artist of the Week!  Using gouache is certainly faster! I couldn't do this show in tempera but I am hoping it may still speed me up a bit! :)
