This weekend we had a family adventure. We travelled to the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery to attend the opening of the National Works on Paper Prize. The exhibition was beautiful, the gallery was welcoming and there were some pretty stand out artists in attendance!!
I am very pleased to say that I am the winner of the Ursula Hoff Institute Emerging Artist Acquisitive Art Award 2016. Kidlet jumped up when my named was announced and hugged me and was so proud – it was a beautiful thing. I am feeling super honoured and pleased and even though I hadn’t slept much because kidelt has been up in the night and we had travelled for hours – I just felt so motivated and excited to get back to drawing. So after the wonderful celebration that was the opening, we went and ate to much Thai and went back to the motel to watch a movie and I drew.
