First Prize in the Pound Arts Open, 2012

November has been an amazingly busy month for me…..

It started with the news that I won FIRST PRIZE in the Pound Arts Open 2012, for my painting ‘Frisky Chicks’.   Fabulous!

As well as winning first prize I also had another pastel painting placed – ‘Along the Ridgeway’ a rich A2 pastel piece.

I became a member of West Ox Arts this month too and  also have work in their Christmas Exhibition in Bampton, Oxfordshire too. That exhibition is up until 20th December – another to catch if you can….

Just Back from a visit to Barcelona – I’d never been before and totally fell in love with the city.

Went on an amazing road trip to the Cote Savage in France this summer…. saw the most beautiful beaches and stunning French villages. If you’re heading over to that area you must visit Le port ostréicole on the Isle d’Oleron- incredible creative collective based out of the old oyster fishermens huts.
