Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award 2017, Winner!
To be selected as a finalist mid-way through the year was fantastic, I had my flights booked and ready for the opening. To win the Print Award was another thing entirely, can't thank enough the support from my family, friends, peers and teachers. It's such an incredible recognition of the work I put in and I couldn't be happier.
Baltic Artists in Australia – Celebrating 100 Years
"A retrospective group exhibition of artists living and working in Australia, with origins from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
2018 marks 100 years since all three Baltic countries – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – first declared their independence. These have been rather eventful 100 years and unfortunately following the World War II all three countries were occupied for several decades. During the war, many people escaped its horrors and afterward the pressures of an occupied society in search of freedom and peaceful life. By now a third generation has grown up calling Australia their home, with origins from one of the Baltic countries.
The exhibition is showcasing works by selected artists with Baltic origins with different backgrounds: some may have fled their country during World War II as children or youths, others being descendants of Baltic origin or moved here in more recent times. Over decades they have integrated into Australian society and many have made significant impact on Australian culture."
