Her charcoal drawing “Dappled Drowse” received glowing remarks from the judges, Di King (last year’s Best in Show recipient), Raelene Sharp (2012 Archibald Packer’s Prize) and Alicia Leggett (Executive Orana Arts), and was named this first prize winner after an initial pre-selection of hundreds of entries from throughout Australia, by Paul Delprat and Mike Coward.
The Mortimore Prize finalists now tour in an Exhibition throughout Australia for a year, which includes Brisbane for the first time in 2013.
This is the third year Tricia has been a finalist in this National award, and she will continue the tradition of the Best in Show recipient being a judge in next year’s award.
Mike Coward, the Mortimore Prize Coordinator, and Director of Australian Art Sales, has purchased “Dappled Drowse” for his personal collection.

The new Colour In Your Life website has officially gone live! We’ve been under construction for a few months now, and we’re quite pleased with the results. The official website launched on Friday the 24th of February. In the past few days we’ve seen over 30 new members come into the site, with some great works being uploaded into our gallery. Anyone can upload into our gallery, however it should be noted that this is different from our Shop.
