I don't let the fear of judgment hold me back; instead, I view competitions as opportunities for artistic exploration and self-discovery.

I enter a small number of competitions that inspire me, but always remember to focus on my unique brand of magic.

You can read more about my thoughts on why artists should enter competitions in my recent blog post, "Unleashing Your Creative Magic: 7 Reasons Why Artists Enter Competitions".

"Unwritten Destiny"

Sketch for Survival 2023 - Finalist

“Unwritten Destiny” is a Sketch for Survival Finalist and was exhibited at The Dundas Street Gallery in Edinburgh and will be at gallery@oxo on London's South Bank (30/10-17/11).

There were over 4,000 entries from amazing artists across more than 100 countries. To be in the final 100 feels very special.

All of the pieces in the Sketch for Survival Exhibitions will be included in an online fundraising auction during October and November.  All funds raised support projects to protect key species and restore ecosystems.
