John Purcell Paper Prize at Ochre Print Studio
It was a lovely surprise to be awarded the John Purcell Paper Prize at the Ochre Print Studio Summer Exhibition. The standard of submissions this year was extremely high, and exhibiting alongside so many talented printmakers made receiving the prize even more special. Thanks to Ochre's tireless team of organisers and volunteers, and to artist Mary Branson for selecting my work on behalf of John Purcell Paper.

I am delighted to be taking part in the annual LOOP exhibition at Bankside Gallery on the South Bank in September 2018. LOOP is an informal co-operative of artists with a background in print. Some of these artists have exhibited internationally, set up print studios, or pursued teaching careers, while others have continued to work in their own studios. A few newcomers have recently completed a Printmaking MA at Camberwell College. LOOP is an evolving platform that has presented some of the best in new printmaking.

'The Man at the Corner Table' screenprint has been selected for inclusion in the permanent art collection of the Scarborough Art Gallery and Museum. The gallery houses a Public Fine Art Collection including works by Ernest Dade, Lord Leighton, Ivon Hitchens, Matthew Smith, Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious. The original Printmakers Council Archive donated 150 prints in 1992, some of which will be displayed alongside selected pieces from the 2017 donation in an exhibition: Lasting Impressions: A Selection of Works from the Printmakers Council Archive.
