RHA Annual Exhibition Award winner and shortlist

I’m really delighted to be the recipient of the ESB Moran Award and Silver Medal for an Outstanding Artwork in the 190th RHA Annual Exhibition. The award is kindly sponsored by ESB Networks Ireland in memory of painter Sean Keating.

In the Birch Plantation, oil and acrylics on canvas, 95×130 cm, 2019.

I am also honoured to be one of five shortlisted artists for the RCSI Art Award in association with the Irish Times. Past winners of the award include Remco de Fouw (2016), Miranda Blennerhasset (2017), Amelia Stein (2018) and Mary A Kelly (2019). I am shortlisted alongside Dominique Crowley, Colin Martin RHA, John Rainey and Niamh Smith. The award winner will be announced in December. The RCSI Art Award was established in 2016 to celebrate the common heritage of RCSI (Royal College of Surgeons Ireland) and the RHA (Royal Hibernian Academy) and the long-standing association between art, medicine and well-being.
