Goodbye London

Today was the last day of the BP Portrait Award 2014 in London. Boy, has it been an experience for me! Although the show moves on to Sunderland and then Edinburgh I do feel like my year has now truly passed and I am working on new works and new challenges. The BP Travel Award 2013 has given me an amazing year, full of research, travel and painting. I loved being so focussed, intent and busy. It all culminated in the exhibition of my works within the BP Portrait Award 2014 and it looks amazing - I still can’t believe those are my paintings up there. Thank you NPG and BP. Onwards and upwards!

The BP Portrait Award 2014 will be back on (with more of my works on display!!) at Sunderland Art Gallery from 4 October.

All works are on my website.

For an organised list of ALL blog posts that I wrote during the BP Travel Award project (2 years), please see this page on my blog!


  1. Congratulations on the whole project and I'm sure experience too for you. If you were not 'on the map' before you are now and well deserved. You put together an impressive group of paintings for this, wish I could have seen them live.
    And the inclusion in the Pay it Forward exhibition at the Principle Gallery is a very big deal too so congrats on that too. Onwards and upwards for sure!
    Keep painting...

  2. Thank you David! That is so kind to write. :)
