2017 WINNER OF THE FISHER'S GHOST JAMES GLEESON AWARD FOR SURREALISM

It's not every day you get to win the same prize twice. Still shell shocked, I'm pleased to announce that I'm the '2017 Winner of the James Gleeson Award for Surrealism' at Campbelltown Arts Centre. The judging panel included esteemed art professionals, Daniel Mudie-Cunningham (Senior Curator of Art Bank, artist and writer), Ben Quilty (artist and AGNSW board of Trustee Member) and Tess Allas (artist, curator and writer). I would like to thank Campbelltown Arts Centre for putting on an amazing evening and to the judges for finding my work worthy and honouring me the award. I would also like to thank the sponsors of the award Michael and Marilyn Reardon-Small for purchasing my work for their collection which will become part of Campbelltown Arts Centre's collection in future years to come.
