“Kisses in Blue” has been given the Derwent Award for Best in Show!

I am incredibly honoured and humbled that ‘Kisses in Blue’ has received the Derwent Award for Best in Show at the UKCPS Keswick Exhibition! Thank you so much to the UK Coloured Pencil Society and Derwent, and a huge congratulations to the other winners!

You can view my drawing and the beautiful artwork of many members of the UK Coloured Pencil Society at the Derwent Pencil Museum in Keswick, until the 26th of June!

 Someone from the society very kindly sent me a photo of my piece in its frame at the show. I wish I could make it up there this year to see everyone’s wonderful art (hopefully next year I can make the trip!).


In other good news I finally have my first covid vaccine booked for the 6th June! I am so relieved. The past year or so has been difficult for many of us and I am extremely thankful to see the light at the end of the tunnel. If you are eligible, please get your vaccine too!

Before I go, if you don’t follow me on Twitter already I recommend that you do! I’ve started posting a lot of my studies and drawings from my sketchbook there exclusively, so if you like seeing that sort of thing check it out 😀

Until next time!
