I was very happy to receive two 'highly commended' ribbons at the 2019 Auckland Royal Easter Show. Once was for my painting, 'Regina Ellen' in the Watercolour Category. The other was for my painting, 'Hacking up the Beach' in the Open Themed Category. Both paintings sold on the night, which was even better. It was great to receive such positive recognition at the show, and to see so many other amazing works of art. If you haven't been before, I 'highly recommend' it!
