Delighted that Dear Anni, gel pen, pencil on envelope (above right), has been awarded the Parker Harris Mentoring Prize. The drawing was exhibited in the Wells Art Contemporary in Wells Cathedral, Somerset, 20th July - 11th August 2019. I loved visiting this city and seeing how the work sits within this historic place of worship. The Dean spoke about how the cathedral was the first in England to be fully built in the Gothic style and was radical in its time, making it the perfect backdrop to show contemporary art.
