It’s been a challenging, but extremely rewarding 3 years.
Making the decision to go back to uni at age 32 was not an easy one, but I knew that this course will give me the type of knowledge I couldn’t get anywhere else or on my own. The support and guidance I received from the tutors who are all professional practicing artists was invaluable. I especially want to thank Leslie Eastman for directing me in my research and concept development.
I have learned to trust my own judgement when it comes to developing and executing ideas, to critique artwork with confidence, to curate a body of work in a way thats most effective, to write and talk about my work and my practice.
It was fantastic to see all the students’ artwork together on display for the grad show last week. The exhibition presented the breadth of disciplines students have explored throughout their time in the course, such as installations using various materials, sculpture, photography and painting. The opening of the exhibition was joyous and exciting.
Thank you, Monash. I can’t wait to take the next step in my art career.
