Ann Oram generously took time out earlier on in the year to judge the ‘Dry Media’ category as part of the Jackson’s Open Painting Prize (she decided to award the prize to Anna Roberts for her pastel ‘Oranges’). When she wasn’t judging our prize, Ann was busy painting, exhibiting, and discussing her work with publications and enthusiasts across the globe! We wanted to find out more about what Ann Oram – a modern day Scottish Colourist – has been up to this year.

Lisa: You judged our ‘dry media’ category prize earlier this year, as part of the Jackson’s Open Painting Prize 2017. What’s it like judging art in this way and what was it about Anna Roberts’ winning entry ‘Oranges’ that stood out for you?
