Exciting news! Last night I was awarded the runner up 'Highly Commended' prize at the Kettering Open 16 at the Alfred East Gallery for Hanson Bay, Kangaroo Island, Australia. This annual Open exhibition is a regional exhibition that welcomes entries from artists in 10 counties around the Midlands. The exhibition includes a wide selection of different art forms with painting, photography, illustration, sculpture, textiles and ceramics. The standard of work was very high, so I was absolutely thrilled to get the prize! The exhibition is on until 14th May, so if you are in the area, please do go and take a look!
Hanson Bay is my favourite beach in Australia. It is reached down a long and bumpy road, and takes your breath away when you arrive and see the horseshoe shaped bay which is a brilliant turquoise blue.
