Almost 150 works were selected from nearly 1,000 entries. 2014 judges were, Edmund Capon AM OBE, and Lewis Miller, Australian Artist. Both viewed all entries and made their selection of semi finalists. Very chuffed to be selected as a semi finalist regardless of the outcome.

One of the very enjoyable aspects of study has been revisiting simplicity. Keep it simple Jeff says and [...]
