Whilst I was very happy about that, it was a bit of a shock to turn the page and come face to face with my own painting – I hadn’t known the information had been sent in. I’m a recent subscriber to Birdwatch so this was my first copy, and now I’m wondering if they’ve used my images before.
Come to think of it, which other publications have shown my work? Of course I’m pleased to have my work in the media, but I’d like to know so I can buy a copy of the magazine or newspaper. I also like to keep a record of exactly where my work has appeared.
Whilst it’s relatively easy to keep track of major interviews, coverage from press releases can easily slip through the net, especially if another organisation sent out the release.
So please, if you see my paintings in a publication do let me know. So far this year I’ve been in Cotswold Life, the Bird Fair Official Programme, the Gloucester Citizen, Herefordshire & Wye Valley Life and Birding World, and the Cotswold Essence interview is soon to be published.
