The Haworth Prize

We had a great time at the New English Art Club preview this week, at the Mall Galleries, London. Having had two works shortlisted for the Haworth Prize, I was absolutely thrilled when my drawing 'Cropton Forest I' was announced the winner! The prize, sponsored by The Haworth Trust is for young artists (aged 35 years and under) living and working in the North of England, creating work inspired by their surroundings.

It really is such an honour to be given this prestigious award, selected by a panel of NEAC members including the NEAC President, Richard Pikesley. Richard said of the work: “We chose ‘Cropton Forest I’ as the winning piece because of its strength and immediacy, the observational quality of its drawing and for the haunting atmosphere it creates looking through the woodland.”

A huge thank you to the Haworth Trust, the NEAC and Mall Galleries. The exhibition runs until 27th June and is not to be missed. Far too many talented artists to mention - see the show if you can.

Selected for the Pastel Society UK Annual Exhibition 2015

I’m delighted to have my work selected for the Pastel Society UK Annual Exhibition again this year. In the last six months or so I’ve been working almost exclusively in dry media – charcoal, graphite, pastel – and I’ve been heavily influenced by Cy Twombly and Ffiona Lewis. Experimenting with mark-making and scratches into the surface of the paper has thrown out some interesting results. Erasing the marks has also been hugely important as it reveals layers and creates a kind of ghostly resonance.  The Pastel Society exhibition will showcase two brand new works which encompass these recent working methods, and runs from 24th February to 7th March, Mall Galleries, London.

UK Arts Directory featured artist

Recently I was invited by UK Arts Directory to be featured in one of their online articles on contemporary artists. Eve Brinkley Whittington writes an excellent blog for the directory and her questions for me were insightful and thought-provoking. In the article I talk about my childhood, artistic influences and what I want to achieve in the future.
