I was excited when I was selected for theTidal.20 exhibition but was absolutely over the moon to find that i had won! This is a great acknowledgement of my progress as an artist. My work called Kelp Elegy will be acquired by Devonport Regional Gallery. The $15,000 prize is most welcome in a year that has been less than easy for artists. Thank you to Devonport Council and the Devonport Regional Gallery Friends Committee.
