Top 5

Some days are better than others! I’m so honoured! Thank you curator Cat Salter-Smith for choosing my painting “Portrait of Paul” as one of your Top 5 favourite paintings among the almost 1000 artworks in this year’s international TAE exhibition in York, UK.

Gala opening event in the Hiscox building on the Saturday 25th june. What a wonderful surprise! Online sale from june 29.

Portrait of Paul

Curators choice

This is what the curator said: 

“Yes, it’s a portrait of a person called Paul, but this artwork is so much more than that! Absolutely love the use of colour and pattern which has turned this ‘portrait’ into a fabulous abstract piece. Would be great to meet Paul one day! He really looks like a fun guy!”

The model, Paul, who is an artist himself was thrilled as he received the good news. 

Makes me really happy to know that this special artwork now belongs to a dedicated collector in sunny California, USA. 

Aiming for 10 years straight

This is my 6th year of participating in TAE and I plan to keep it up for at least 4 more! Two years ago my entry made the front page among several others and this year my entry gets highlighted as one of the Top 5. So much fun!
