After living in Adelaide for almost my entire life moving to Brisbane was a sudden and unexpected change of plans. It's been 6 months now and it's been a very exciting and challenging time. Not that I was ever short of inspiration in Adelaide but as I find myself surrounded by a whole new world, the new inspiration is overwhelming and I can't get the ideas out quick enough. Meanwhile as I'm caught up in all of this having left the familiarity of home, family, friends and a network of people within an arts culture I have been an active part of for so many years, I find myself having to start all over again. Therefore I am excited to announce that my monoprint, " Greetings from Australia" was accepted into The Inkmasters Print Exhibition in Cairns and 'my first step' into the arts culture of Queensland.
