Winning Artwork

I am so happy to announce that my painting 'Reflections on a Grey Room' was chosen last night by judges Dr Carole Shepheard & Reuben Friend for the TSB Community Trust Painting Award at the 2017 Taranaki National Art Awards.

This painting is the largest and most personal work I have yet executed and I am so thrilled to have been awarded this prize in a place which has nurtured and given a home to so many creative talents.

To see the complete work and read about some of the symbolism behind the image please go to Featured Artwork.

The full image will be available in an edition of 38 limited edition archival prints.

Price and size to be determined over the next few days.
