NEW STUDIO is OPEN

December 31, 2015

New Year, New Studio, New work

What can I say, last year was tough. In good ways, but exhausting. I finished a Advanced Diploma at the start of the year, had a new baby boy, built a home and new studio and held a solo exhibition. So its with great pleasure that I say my new studio is OPEN! Situated in Lethbridge, 25 mins on a country rd from Geelong, Vic. Exciting times as I prepare the studio for the Golden planes art trail in March, and I start on a new body of work based on retro toys.

 
Come for a visit, see works in progress, and available work "in the flesh" Chat about a commission. I will also be holding "professional Development " workshops for artist's again too. Thankyou all for your support in my life's passion and I hope to see you in the new year! x
