I have never been to Perth or Margaret River! Thank you @emergencecreative for including me so I can continue travel sketching the slow way in Western Australia.
This event is part of WA’s premier festival called Emergence Creative Festival,
an annual gathering for the international creative industry, and to capture the beauty of the famed wine region during harvest season.
About a month ago, mid January, I applied to this open call, and I was pleasantly surprised that I was short -listed and invited to their wine and grazing table reception where I met a few of the other short-listed artists. The next day I was one of the 16 shortlist artists to get interviewed. I brought my travel sketchbooks, we talked about road trip to Mexico, and the travel sketching around the world that I’ve just finished in 15 months. Brianna and Erin were very complimentary about my sketchbooks which is exciting. I was hoping to get to go to Margaret River, because that’s a whole new continent, and a whole new place I have not travelled sketch to, and the pictures they showed me of the wine region was magnificent. I cannot wait to see that all in real life.
Here's the link to the article on their website.
Thank you Brianna and Erin for picking me.
