Oh my gosh Oh my gosh Oh my gosh…

I’m so excited to share that I’ve been selected as a finalist for this year’s Archibald Prize! For the of you that are not Australian, The Archibald Prize is an insanely popular portraiture competition, and my painting will be hanging among the 50 finalists at The Art Gallery of NSW, one of Australia’s most prominent museums. It will then tour the country for one year visiting 6 art centers and galleries.

The subject is a friend of mine who also happens to be an activist, designer and one of Australia’s top models, Ollie Henderson. Ollie has received global recognition for founding fashion label and youth empowerment project House of Riot. Give her a google and prepare to be amazed by her long list of accomplishments and global recognition!
