Wow this year has certainly started with a BANG!!!
In less than 2 months I will be off to Europe to spend 4 weeks at Chateau Orquevaux in France for an artist residency with 9 other artists from around the world! So excited and blessed to have been chosen from hundreds of entries.
While I have received a grant from the chateau I still need to fund $6000 myself pus materials so I have started a Go Fund Me campaign to help with the cost so if you have some spare dollars to donate it would be greatly appreciated! Every dollar counts and you will be in the draw to win a print of Alibi! See link =
I was also blessed to receive a $1000 Community Pathways grant from Wyndham City Council auspices by Red West which went towards my flights. Seriously artists if you want to connect with other creatives in Wyndham you MUST join our arts co op Red West - run by artists for artists. The friends, advice and fun I've had has been priceless in my arts journey. I wouldn't have received my grant from council without the excellent advice & tips from my fellow artisans at Red West!
I have also been shortlisted for the Wyndham Art Prize! I am beyond excited to finally be shortlisted for an art prize after 4 years of entering! It only goes to prove - need give up! Stay true to your passion and work on your craft - persistence pays off. Opening night is the 4th April at 6.30pm so come and see some of the great art including my piece "Goddess Ascending"
In final news I have been accepted as a student at RMIT to do my Master of Fine Art! I will have to defer until I'm back from Europe but that's the next 3 years sorted hahaha!
