Following participation in Collect 2021 with House on Mars Gallery I was awarded the Brookfield Properties Crafts Council Collection Award 2021, which was a wonderful surprise. My pieces 'Capture' and 'Weave', created during and just after the first lockdown in 2021, were acquired by Brookfield Properties as a gift for the Crafts Council's Primary Collection. The prize was announced at the opening of Collect 2021 at the award event.

As part of the annual prize, the winning artist has the opportunity of a high profile solo exhibition in London with Brookfield Properties and the Crafts Council. My exhibition On Tenterhooks is open to the public from June 21st - September 3rd 2021 across two square mile venues - 99 Bishopsgate and Aldgate Tower. The exhibition is a showcase of the recent textile works acquired for the Crafts Council Collection, alongside key pieces and films from my portfolio.
