|Much giddy excitement!!|
I don't know how to say this but I really wanted you to be the first to know.... I've only just found out myself this morning and I've been in a state of giddy excitement ever since!
The SAA have awarded me their Artist of the Year award 2012!!!!
I'm so so thrilled about it all!!
The results won't actually be published for a while but I'm sure they won't mind me telling you, I really can't keep it to myself!
Apart from the sheer thrill and honour I have also won fabulous prizes... £1000 plus £1000's worth of art materials, an engraved crystal goblet (which I will show you when I receive it!) and £500's worth of art materials to give to a school or art club of my choice, which I think I've already decided about!
It hasn't really sunk in yet!
Thank you so much for your ongoing support and encouragement, it means a great deal to me!
Big smiles all round! And now I'm going out with my friends to celebrate!
