During lockdown in 2020, I participated in a collaborative postal project, with The Bruton Correspondence School, in Somerset, UK. The work of over 350 artists who re-made each other’s work, is on show at Bruton Museum, until 25th September.
I’m very happy to hear that my ink drawing has been long listed for the Ruth Borchard Self Portrait Prize, and will be part of an online exhibition hosted by London gallery Piano Nobile and Artsy, selected by a panel including Will Gompertz and Victoria Miro. The letter of confirmation was particularly satisfying to receive:
“From over 2000 entries your work has been identified as an outstanding contribution to the self-portrait genre and longlisted. With so many outstanding works submitted to the 2021 prize this is a huge achievement.”
The exhibitions opens on 14th May, here
The first exhibition of a selection of my ink self-portraits, is now open at the Butcher’s Hook, Southampton.
Nine works are on show, all prints available for sale either framed (from £95) or unframed (from £65). Please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.

The Ruth Borchard Self Portrait Prize exhibition opened on 24th May, at an absolutely packed Piano Nobile Gallery at King’s Place, London. My ink drawing ‘Ready for a Change Now’ was long listed from over 1000 entries. Ruth Borchard was a writer who came to the UK as a Jewish refugee from Germany in 1938. She collected 100 self-portraits by British artists, and the biennial prize celebrates her collection.
