Reasons To Be Alone
Oil on Canvas

Winner of The Holly Bush Emerging Woman Painter Prize 2020
This award would impact my artistic career by allowing me to showcase my work in front of a larger audience. I am based in North Devon and whilst this has been beneficial to my artistic vision it has hindered the abiltiy to grow, due to the lack of artistic opportunities for young emerging female artists within a male dominated area. There is also a lack of exhibition and gallery space, that is why exhibiting in Zebra One Gallery and The Art Space would bring a new audience to my work and the chance to meet likeminded others and widen my social scope. Furthermore, to win such a prestigious award would enable to further develop my portraiture skills and give me confidence in myself as a young female artist. - Corinne Young, 2020
