I was blown away by this wonderful event. Upon arrival I was stunned by the scale of it, with marquees galore in the beautiful setting of Waterperry Gardens. It is quite unbelievable how it is run so smoothly by volunteers who do such an incredible job of making everyone - artists and visitors alike - so welcome. I had lots of chats with people about my art, my new book, printing, photography, Africa and other artists in the show.
Around 400 wonderful artists exhibit and demonstrate at the event so I was thrilled to be voted third in the 'Best of the Best' award
by all the artists attending the event, with my drawing of Grid of Nine - Sparrows
I hope to be there again next year for more of the same. I will also have copies of my book for sale there rather than just a sample to browse, and lots of new prints and originals for sale.
