“The Other Art Fair Sydney has been the highlight of my career so far. The exposure to a large new audience, strong sales and getting my work into a Sydney gallery were beyond my expectations. I have enjoyed chatting with visitors and other artists and have returned home inspired and keen to attend next year.”
