Thanks to everyone who came to our Graduation Show. Wow! What an amazing night it was!  Congratulations to everyone who graduated, won something or showed. Thanks to NAS and the Saatchi team we had an amazing turnout of over 2,000 people.

I was delighted to be awarded not just one but two prizes. I was proud to accept the Lennox Street Residency - a one year tenancy at the fabulous Lennox Street Studios in funky Newtown, plus a show there. I am so pleased to have an awesome space, and great artists to work with for the next 12 months.

I was also awarded the National Art School Aboriginal Art Centre Internship. Thanks to Sharon Toffler and Mark Tedeschi QC who are supporting me to go to the famous Ikuntji Art Centre, 230 kms West of Alice Springs and deep in a rich cultural heritage. I cannot wait and am sure the experience will be life changing. I am very honoured to be accepted.

Finally, I also sold 7 out of the 9 painting shown. I am delighted that people responded so well to my work, and even more pleased that the work will be viewed and appreciated. The support from everyone has bowled me over, and left me quite breathless. Thank you so much for appreciating my work, and supporting me.

If this is 2013... I can't wait for 2014. Wishing everyone a brilliant New Year and thanks.
