John Richardson French Residency Award Exhibition

I”m very excited to announce that my two sided painting “Holiday Dreaming” has been shortlisted for the The John Richardson French Residency Award and will be exhibited at Hambly and Hambly in Enniskillen Sunday 14th November 2021 from 12-4pm.
You can cast three winning votes in the gallery ballot-box for the attention and consideration of the panel of judges and I would be so appreciative of your support.  This residency would be a dream opportunity for me to develop my painting practice and have mentorship.  Fingers crossed!
