I started to ponder
when I finish being a student
I  am almost finished
the student exhibition finishes Wednesday
It was a great event, bit of a blurr,
a tad nervous, all the same energy
Nervousness, excitement,
but what does the body know?

Diploma of Visual Arts,
2013 and my name somewhere
A year at TAFE, Murwillumbah
who’d a thought?

here, now
TAFE has been great
I have these amazing teachers
practitioner artists who teach,
they were off on residencies this year
in their school holidays

It s been an amazing, emotional year.
it’s the planets, we all know that
the greater beingness of us

Next year
I am going to go round two,
Advanced Diploma,
I have more to learn,
It just awakens the more me
I have discovered my passion for print,
I love sculpture since a long time,

I am happy to study,
doing what you love does feed your soul

more expensive than Uni

I am what I am,
