Shock, horror, exhibitions and sales!
A few weeks before we went to live in Melbourne, I got an email from an Italian gallery curator. He said he'd seen my work online and asked if I would show canvases in an exhibition over there. I was gobsmacked! And accepted.
In Melbourne I approached Brunswick Street Gallery, and I showed the same paintings there. It amazed me that two of my canvases were sold in that show - my first ever sale!
