I was absolutely delighted to be Highly Commended at the 'Who Is Looking At You?' Portraize Prize on the weekend, hosted by Cambrdige Studio Gallery in Collingwood, Melbourne.
Judged by esteemed artists Graeme Drendel and Colleen Ahern, it was an honour to be selected as a finalist - and even more so to receive a Highly Commended Award alongisde portrait artist Paul Miller. RMIT Photography Graduate Kimberly Liddle won this annual prize with a stunning and unique photographic collage/sculpture.
Congratulations to all finalists, and a big thank you to every person involved with the show - and of course the wonderful model/muse Tony. His wonderfully expressive face that combines wisdom, apathy and introspection is a portrait artist's dream!
All finalists works are on display at the gallery Collingwood until the 28th of February, so make sure you swing by if you're in the area.
