One year on and I have to say “where did that year go?” It has been a whirlwind of a year.
Family has found me again and at times I think they wish I was back at Tech stressing over final show rather than checking on homework and tidiness of bedrooms.
Personally I have had a great year, the graduate show at Fingers Gallery, having work in Fingers Annual show and experimentation with new ideas along with meeting Mike Holmes again at Talkfest.
But still I feel I haven’t done enough. I think that will always be me though. The jewellery scene in Auckland is supportive and involved. and I feel great to be a small part of it. This year I have spoken to some of my heroes and found out they are approachable and full of encouragement. So what next?
