BP Travel Award: Exhibitions

In 2013 my Self Portrait with Lace Collar was accepted into the BP Portrait Award exhibition. One of the awards in this exhibition is the Travel Award. I gratefully received the Award for my proposal to research how lace is depicted in early 17th century portraiture in England and The Netherlands. My travel and research inspired me to create a new series of paintings. A selection of the paintings was exhibited within the BP Portrait Award 2014 exhibition which started in London in June 2014 and toured to Sunderland, Edinburgh and Wales thereafter. A book celebrates my project and catalogues the paintings.
