I’m overjoyed to receive the Artist in Focus Award from the City of Joondalup! Of all the generous prizes entrusted by the judges of the Community Art Exhibition, I was immensely fortunate to receive the one I most deeply need; the prize includes a 2017 solo exhibition at the Joondalup Art Gallery, and $500 towards my arts practice. On the night of the opening, I met such wonderful people and bid farewell to my painting Narcissus, one of the hundred and thirty works on display at Joondalup Shopping City.
A larger photo of Narcissus can be found here. Below is The Weekender's press release on the event.
