I've entered the Parkin Prize every year since its inception but have never been a selected finalist. Mad? Nah I love seeing what does get in and it lifts my game.
I'll enter again this year too. I like to reuse materials as there's already enough stuff in the world without using new resources to create more. I explore ideas using; photography, paint and other wet media, dry media like pencil and deeply felt pen, traditional crafts like crochet, knitting, applique and sewing.
