amazing news!

Today the A.N.U. Graduating Exhibition officially came to an end and I'm happy to say that it was an extraordinary success! Thanks to the A.N.U. Emerging Artist Support Scheme and some very generous patrons I am looking forward to lots of exciting projects and opportunities in 2011.

I'm extremely grateful to have received the Torres Scholarship for Young Australian Artists awarded by the Embassy of Spain, which will enable me to travel to Spain to learn from amazing artists and museum collections as well as experiencing unique architecture, landscape and culture. 

I was also awarded a solo exhibition at the Belconnen Gallery, a group exhibition at the Alliance Française, a residency at the Megalo Print Studio and acquisitive awards from KPMG and Annabel Wallace. I really appreciate the incredible support from all of these organisations as well as everyone who came and enjoyed the exhibition :) I will be sure to keep you updated on my progress as I get started on the new work.
