I'm honoured to have been awarded First Prize at The Grosvenor Museum's 12th Open Art Exhibition


This year 206 artworks from a submission of 567 were chosen by selectors;

Maxine Bristow, Programme Leader MA Fine Art, University of Chester.

John Renshaw, Emeritus Professor of Fine Art, University of Chester.

Peter Boughton, Keeper of Art, West Cheshire Museums.


I was presented with First Prize by Sarah Maxfield, Area Director North, Arts Council England, who opened the exhibition.


The Private View Evening was very well attended and it was great to meet so many creative people.

Congratulations to Peter Boughton and The Grosvenor team for such a diverse and interesting exhibition.

This year for the first time at the RBSA photography as a medium is acceptable in this popular exhibition. It's a 'trial event' following the AGM decision to accept photography into the Open. The exhibition was opened by Jonnie Turpie, High Sheriff of the West Midlands and Founder Director of Maverick Films. I'll be exhibiting a watercolour completed last year.
