The BBC Big Painting Challenge

I was chosen as one of ten artists to take part in The Big Painting Challenge. The new BBC 1 Primetime series that set out to find Britain's best amateur painter.

The BBC received over 6,000 applications from artists all over the country. I am happy to say that I was chosen as one of the ten artists to actually take part in the Challenge.

Una Stubbs and Richard Bacon were the celebrity hosts of the programe. Lachlan Goudie and Daphne Todd OBE judged the challenge and had to decide which of the ten amateur artists would be crowned the winner of the six part series. At the end of the series selected works by the ten artists will be displayed at the Tate Britain Gallery.

I was very proud to have been chosen as one of the competing artists, and taking part in the programme was an exciting episode in my life.
