CHANCE OF A LIFETIME!!
I was really lucky last year to be chosen for the Sky Arts Portrait Competition! All competing artists had a month to complete a self portrait in their chosen medium which was then judged by a panel of prestigious portrait artists! The winners were invited to a series of televised heats where we each had four hours only to produce a portrait of a celebrity! My celebrity was Robert Lindsey - a marvellous face to draw! It was a great way to get completely outside of my comfort zone! - although I didn't win my heat I had a really fun day,
learnt lots and met some fine people! !
