Artist shortlisted for the NOA!

I am delighted to report that two of my paintings, ‘Blanketed’ and ‘Restraint’, have been shortlisted for the National Open Art Competition!…

Now in its 21st year, the NOA is fast becoming one of the most prestigious and coveted art events in the UK with many thousands of entries each year. Being shortlisted is in itself an achievement as the competition is particularly fierce. Those that make the final selection will have their work exhibited in the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, South Bank, London.  (17-26 November 2017)


As a shortlisted artist I have now also been automatically entered into the exciting ‘World Art Vote’, now in its third year, where my work is displayed anonymously on the NOA website to allow people from around the world to view some of the best British and Irish Art today.  As well as being awarded £1,000, the work with the most votes will be included in the 21st National Open Art Exhibition regardless of the judges’ results as it is the ‘people’s choice’.


Voting is now open and closes on the 28 August. Just click on each link below and you will be taken directly to the voting page for that painting. It’s very quick and simple. once you have voted for one you can click previous/next and vote for the other as well! You can vote for both paintings but only once per email account. Of course if you have more than one email do please use them to vote too! Please ask your friends, family, neighbours and colleagues to join in and vote too…  the more the merrier because its a great event AND I’d really love to win!!

Thank you. xxx
