I was delighted to have two prints selected for the annual Royal Scottish Academy open submission exhibition in November and then even more delighted to discover that I had been jointly awarded the Maude Gemmell Hutchison prize for my Night Herons print above. The prize was £200 which I intend to put towards my place on a Seabird Drawing Course, taking place in North Berwick in June 2012. The week will be overseen by some of my artistic heroes - John Busby, Greg Poole, Darren Woodhead and John Threlfall. An entire week of working alongside some very experienced artists and being taken to some of the best birding sites along the East Lothian coast - I can't wait!
New Kittie Jones Tea Towels!
I am really excited to have branched out into the world of tea towel design and will be launching my new tea towel at my British Birds 3 exhibition at the Watermill in March 2012 and as maker of the month at Concrete Wardrobe in June 2012. Watch this space for further details.
I was delighted to have this piece, Three Seagulls, accepted for the Annual Visual Arts Scotland exhibition which is on show at the Royal Scottish Academy from 4th February - 1st March.
