WINNER OF COMPETITION ANNOUNCED

Press release March 2008

TUAM RESIDENT WINS INTERNATIONAL ARTWORK


Local business woman Mary Blake, who owns the Horizon Beauty Centre in Tuam, Galway, Ireland (tel: 093-28685), was astounded to be informed recently that she had succeeded, over hundreds of other entrants, to win a coveted original painting worth 2000 euros, by Irish born artist TJ Miles. Already a TJ Miles collector, Mary entered a competition to win the artwork in the leading homes and lifestyle magazine - ‘Ireland’s Homes, Interiors & Living’ in which TJ Miles was the March issue’s ‘Artist of the Month‘.


The prize was even further highlighted by the artist flying in, from his home and studio in Spain, to deliver the artwork in person. Mary said “I’m absolutely thrilled to win this painting, it’s a wonderful addition to my personal art collection.”
Note from TJ - 'Mary, hope you enjoy the painting for many years to come!'
