Earlier this year I was amazed to discover I got a mention on this year's GCSE art exam paper.
I know my work has been used as a resource for painting in schools and colleges for a few years now, one teacher Maggie Evans, teaching GCSE and A level fine art students (14 to 18 years) as Head of Design Faculty at King Edward VII Science & Sports College, Leicestershire, wrote to me saying she uses it because "... your style of work attracts that generation. It's relevant, realistic and it makes a connection to pop art. From a teachers point of view its an interesting source to use in lessons."
So given I was now mentioned on the actual paper, I decided to run a competition for students who may have used my work for their inspiration for their own final pieces, I was sent some beautiful work, and I would show all of them if I could, but here are my 6 favorites.
Thank you to all the students and teachers who sent images, and I wish you all the best with your exam results.
