Unexpected Surprises

My boyfriend and I returned from Costa Rica a week ago. Before we left I was frantically trying to fill out forms for art awards and exhibitions that would be due while we were away. I was working two jobs so all the work for the entries was being done when I got home at 2am or on my lunch breaks; just getting the applications sent in was an achievement in itself. The day we got back I checked the mail and found a letter informing me I had been shortlisted for an exhibition at the McClelland Gallery!
I was really proud with the work I had submitted (the box with the topographic landscape inside, from my last entry here and a map of my home town) but didn't expect to be considered as a finalist. I am a first year fine art student and really just need the practice putting together applications and writing artist statements. It's a nice feeling knowing that those few days of running around with little sleep actually paid off.

I've attached the other piece that will be in the exhibition, it's a map of my home town, Tumut.

Uni Project

This is one of my major projects for the semester. It's made from woodcut prints on paper and box board and is the topographic layout of my home town of Tumut. I want to write more about the process but I am about to go to the airport and get on a plane heading for Costa Rica! Adios!

In the beginning...

I've been wanting to create a blog for a while now but, as usual, there was always something else needing to be done. It's taken a frustrating uni assignment to get the ball rolling. So far all that's come of this is the confirmation that I am not a computer person... Give me a piece of paper any day! Here's hoping my computer skills improve soon, and quickly!
