Comments from Jurist Caroline Mustard
Impressive body of work, I did not expect this degree of artistic endeavor. I was impressed by the creativity and general excellent use of the medium and sensitivity of marks. It makes a great show as  it spans many different genres.  It was difficult to select the winners as they were all winners in their own way.  Thanks for the privilege of being your judge!

Jurist Caroline Mustard received her BA in fine art (painting) from the prestigious Brighton University’s Faculty of Art.  Working for a living as an art director, Caroline expressed her love of painting through scenic painting in Hollywood at which she is expert.  But when she was given her first iPad 5 years ago she was reborn s a painter and now specializes in painting on her iPad using it as a fine art canvas in the same manner as David Hockney, one of her major influences. Caroline since has become the leading iPad art instructor in the Silicon Valley, having taught classes in many locations including Stanford, Filoli, Palo Alto Art Center, the Pacific Art League and so on. Caroline is a working artist and has had three exhibitions of her work in the past two years.  Her traditional art training mixed with her love of technology makes her the ideal artist in this modern age.
