The UK magazine Artists and Illustrators runs an annual artist of the year competition. I entered it and was delighted to hear that the judges had shortlisted my Shelves of Inspiration. There are 50 artists on the shortlist, and all of the pieces will be on display 23 - 28 Janaury 2017 at the Mall Galleries, London.
Part of the competition is a Reader's Choice vote. If you want to vote, you can see the whole shortlist here:
