About the work

This is my friend Jess; we both grew up in together as true blue Brissy girls. Our connection began back in primary school at Sandgate. We shared a mutual interest in exploring our local area which meant fish and chips on the beach, the Einbunpin Festival and hanging out on the main drag. 

Now we are sharing graduation and the world is at our feet. I chose Jess to be the subject of my artwork because of our shared story and our enduring friendship.
