Thanks & Gratitude..      
IMG_0553

Four months later and I'm still on a high from having my debut Solo Exhibition at the Albemarle Gallery! Thank you ever so much to everyone who took time out to visit the show in May. The love and support was so heartwarming and was what made it a true success for me. A special thank you to Albemarle Gallery manager Tony Pontone for giving me the honour of having my first show at his wonderful gallery. It was more than a dream come true!

Kathryn Roberts and I

What keeps me grounded is knowing where I came from and also knowing how difficult it is for artists to be recognised. I feel extremely fortunately to not only be doing what I love for a living but to have so many wonderful supporters all over the world feel inspired by what I do. Knowing that I've encouraged at least one person to pursue their passions is what keeps me fueled to do more and be more.
iArtBook Publisher Kathryn Roberts played a HUGE part in preparations for my debut Solo Show. She was a coach, a mentor, a business manager and most importantly to me - a friend who had my best interest at heart. There wouldn't have been a show if I didn't have her help and support guiding me along the way. THANK YOU Mrs Roberts!!! 

I introduce you to COLOUR!!!

From seeing the world in black & white for long I finally add some colour into my life. It feels like my whole personality changed! It's been such a joy creating in colour.
