I'm over the moon to get this award from Sheila Vaughan whose beautiful paintings are a huge inspiration to me. The trouble is I have got to nominate two others to receive the award and it's very difficult to choose from all the talented people out there. However I'm going to choose two of my countrymen/women – one of them is Rob Ijbema who seems effortlessly to create beautiful oil paintings of the welsh countryside, and Julie Oakley who with her brilliant pen and ink drawings gives us a glimpse into her family life. And I can't believe I've actually managed to do some links for the first time!
