As we only moved to the area earlier this year, this was my first Escape ARTfest. I entered two pieces into the RIPE sculpture prize: Goanna and a puppy: Mia (aka El Burro Gato).

Goanna was awarded an Encouragement Award and both pieces sold.

I wasn’t able to make it to the launch as I was in QLD, but K-M collected the certificate on my behalf.
