Free Speech at Demo this Thursday!
I have some work in a group show opening this week in Auckland! Full details below…
If you follow me on instagram, you might have noticed I’ve been busy stitching, I have a piece that grew out of my nana’s shorthand note book, it’s been many, many hours of fine work, read more about the note book and my studio research here on my MFA blog. There are heaps of other artists, so there will be plenty to see, especially at the opening!
