I was recently lucky enough to be selected as a finalist in the SAA's Artist of the Year 2010 competition and received a 'Commended' award for my painting 'Reflection'.

I'm pictured here with John Hope-Hawkins, Chairman of the Society for All Artists, in front of the painting, at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London.

I'm very pleased to say that my painting 'On the Beach', while displayed at Malmesbury
Art Society's Christmas Exhibition, WON the 'People's Choice - Best in Show' award with 41 votes, was short-listed for the John Lobban Award, sold within the first couple of days and gained me a commission to paint a similar picture!

If all the lovely comments I received are anything to go by, this picture certainly seemed to strike a chord with a lot of people, which is really nice to hear.
