“555 Special” Art Exhibition 2019 – Painting & Other Media

I am so proud and excited to announce that after entering my first ever at competition I have won three awards!! I entered the Light Space Time - 555 Special 2019 competition and three of my colour pencil artworks were chosen. One of my artworks even came in 4th place which I think is amazing out of 1,165 entries.

This is my ‘Three Happy Kittens’ Colour Pencil Drawing which came in fourth place. It has been my most popular commission and I am excited to be drawing them again fully grown. Signed prints are available of this cute drawing which you can purchase from my shop.

This is the first in my limited edition print collection where i have used my imagination and multiple reference photos to create this unique colour pencil artwork of a kitten playing in a spring country garden and seeing a butterfly for the first time. I am so proud of this piece because it had many new challenges for me and developed my colour pencil skills greatly. I am now almost finished with the next print in line, representing summer so stay tuned for that one. Signed prints are available of this cute drawing which you can purchase from my shop.

I am so pleased that this piece won an award because it was a very early days drawing when I had just started my business and I wanted to develop my skills and try out different techniques for creating texture. I used 100% colour pencil with this drawing, and I am extremely happy with the outcome. I may in fact do more food art in the future.

Thank you for your continuous support of my art. I couldn’t have done it without my loving followers and wonderful customers so thank you so much for helping me live my dream.
