NT recipient of the 2011 Qantas Foundation Encouragement of Australian Contemporary Art Award!!
Thank you to Steve Eland Director at 24HR ART for nominating me and then amazingly selected by Elizabeth Ann Macgregor from the Museum of Contemporary Art, Edmund Capon, Director of the Art Gallery of NSW, Kon Gouriotis and Frank Panucci representing the Australia Council for the Arts, Alan Dodge former Director of the Art Gallery of Western Australia, and art collector Pat Corrigan.
Felt very glam for one night at the award presentation at Artspace, Sydney amongst the other very strong artists:
Brown Council – a collective of four artists (NSW), Adam Viekkanen (ACT), Hiromi Tango (Qld), Anthony Johnson (Tas), Sue Kneebone (SA), Thea Costantino (WA), Ash Keating (Vic) and me - somehow looming large on the far right.
