Exciting times

What an exciting time it has been. I've loved my time as Artist in Residence @ Wesley College with the Year 7 boys - boys and sharp knives - they loved it!! I also spent some time mentoring one Yr 12 boy Nicholas Gumulya who included a detailed paper cut in his final WACE examination piece.

They produced some fabulous work which is on display with some of my pieces this weekend at Wesley College's Masters and Apprentices Exhibition in South Perth - come along and have a look - the quality at this exhibition, Kindergarten to Yr 12, is outstanding. Andy Quilty was the Artist in Residence with the Senior Boys and his work is also on display along-side some of the Yr 11 and 12 work which is breath-taking.

This week I also have a piece of work at the City of South Perth's Emerging Artist Awards. I was delighted to receive the Best Work on a Local theme - 'Heart of South Perth' which is on display at the exhibition at the South Perth Civic Centre for the next week. Nicholas Gumulya's work was also entered and won the Secondary Student Award - well done Nic!
