last week for Resilience

This is the last week to view my exhibition Resilience at the Butter Factory Arts Centre, Cooroy, bump-out is late afternoon on Wednesday 17 February, and I'll be in the gallery from 3pm for anyone wishing to catch up before the show closes.

A huge thank you, to everyone who took the time to visit my exhibition and for attending the Official Opening, Artist Guided Tour and Artist Conversations in the Gallery - I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity in sharing insights into my process, especially on how the Awards Trophy was created.

Attending the Awards (Sunshine Coast Australia Day) Ceremony, and hearing the amazing stories told by the awe inspiring peeps made me feel very privileged to have created this years awards trophy, and I am very humbled by the lovely feedback I've received from the recipients in appreciation of receiving their trophy - also a big shout of thanks goes to the Sunshine Coast Regional Council for providing local artists with this opportunity.

Pictured above, the actual Awards Trophy - an original photograph was converted into a vector file to create the design.
