Doing a Happy Dance for Lisa
It isn't every day that an artist can claim having their own range of art materials and we are so thrilled for Lisa whose range of carefully selected PanPastel colours will be available on the market very soon. Watch out for this set which will have Lisa's images on the cover and we will keep you posted once they are available.
What an Awesome Achievement Deb!
We are just delighted for Deb whose coloured pencil drawing 'Drop Dead Gorgeous' has won The David Shepherd Award at The Wildlife Art Society International Exhibition. The artworks at the event can be any medium and must have a wildlife theme. This is the second year in a row that she has won this award - kudos to Deb!
