Wow, what an incredibly crazy and challenging year I had in 2019! So much achieved - paintings created, exhibitions had, market stalls, commissioned pieces completed, a children's book started, and most importantly, so many of my pieces made their way to their new homes - I'm truly blown away by what I achieved, and truly humbled by the support and investments made, purchasing my artwork.
I set up shop at 4 markets including Plat 4 Bowden, Marina Markets Glenelg, Etsy Adelaide and Semaphore Street Fair.
I donated 7 pieces of artwork to community clubs and charity auctions including Make a Wish, the Neil Sachse Centre and more.
I became a RAW Australia Artist, showcasing in Burnside in November (and painted my first surfboard!)
SALA 2019 - I exhibited and sold pieces in the stunning new Mark Lobert Gallery, Fare and Square in North Adelaide, and the Coachhouse in Gumeracha.
I relocated my studio to home - in my shed (thanks to my hubby for embracing the mess!) And thanks to the talented Mark Lobert for having me for some 18 months.
I also exhibited my work in Black Diamond Tattoo Studio in Port Adelaide and ran my first group workshop, with some amazing paintings produced!
I continued to upload new artwork and sell my cards on Cardly.net. - selling some 300 cards.
I completed 8 commissioned pieces and sold some 30 paintings in total!
I started work on a new children's book in collaboration with a talented writer (stay tuned)
And one of my significant celebrations was Friday 6th December, the opening of Tinglish in Thebarton, Adelaide - a new exhibition home for my artwork. I'm so incredibly grateful to the beautiful souls and owners, Mat and Pichai who have given me their wonderful space to exhibit and sell my work.
The food is outstanding - best Thai food in town and the venue looks amazing - it's bright, colourful, yet has that elegant and beautiful feel with outstanding service. I am so proud to be included in this wonderful new venture.
Tinglish - opened by renowned restaurateurs Mat and Pichai Ngoensawang at 54a George Street, Thebarton. The restaurant buzzes with excitement and serves food to die for.
