A Lifetime of Laughter is Highly Commended

My pencil portrait A Lifetime of Laughter has received the accolade of Highly Commended in SAA Artists of the Year 2020. This annual competition attracts thousands of entries from an international pool of artists, so to be recognised is a great privilege.

You can see a gallery of all the winning and commended artworks on the SAA website here.

I am particularly proud to have received the award of Highly Commended as I received the same in the 2018 SAA Artists of the Year competition for my pencil drawing Amur Leopard.

A Lifetime of Laughter is currently being exhibited along with A Thirst for Life as a part of the Society of Women Artists exhibition. The show is open till 31st December 2020. SWA exhibitions are typically held at the Mall Galleries in London, however due to the exceptional circumstances and challenges of this year, the show is for the first time being held online, giving opportunity for a global audience to enjoy it.
