Opening Night

At last, the moment I had been working towards for five weeks arrived.

The opening night was held on Tuesday night. It was a balmy night, and many sweaty gallery goers stood in front of fans to cool off, but everybody loved it and raved about which piece was their favourite. Big Bertha obviously dropped the most jaws.

And so it begins

I’ve been handed the keys to a fantastic space in Surfers Paradise and told I have five weeks to install a solo exhibition. Excited is an understatement.
