I'm thrilled that "I Lost my Heart" has been awarded a "Highly Commended" in my first competition with the Pastel Society of Australia (May 2020)
"An impressive painting skilfully created.
The realism in this painting is woven into an abstract composition that keeps me intrigued. The textures are beautifully painted with evident understanding of the importance of lost and found edges.
Also, a strong understanding of light to create the three-dimensionality of form in the bubbles, heart, and shell."
I was thrilled to have been included in the
"10 Artists Living in Livingstone" Exhibition
