Oldham Open 2017

The Oldham Open 2017 is this September, and I’m looking forward to starting research for my submission. Model lined up, lots of ideas, just hope it all falls into place…


I’ll be heading up to Northumberland soon. I’m so looking forward to the beautiful light, seabirds, and inspiring coastline. Hoping to get lots of great picture reference for future art projects.
