The last few months has been all about exhibition preparations, photo shoots, invites, catalogues, guest list, bus bookings, media releases, promo etc., etc., it's amazing how much planning goes on behind the scenes to deliver an exhibition, we even booked a bus to transport folk down to Brisbane from the Sunny Coast!! And after an intense schedule in the lead up to the show it's certainly a rewarding feeling when it all comes together on the day of install... which this brings me to last weekend, where Anne and I met up in Brisbane to install our exhibition. A long day indeed, however, with great delight the day went without a hitch - it was smooth sailing from start to finish! So very grateful. Now all we have is the menu to think of and come Sunday the celebrations begin!

First glance may deceive, Anne totally in control and has transformed this blank wall into a canvas with her stunning works!
