Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Prize

 

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.

Sadly didn’t win the £10K prize this time, but it was fantastic to be there for the opening, and see my work exhibited alongside Eileen Cooper, Julian Opie …and Tracey Emin in the crowd too!
