Thank you to the Craig Gallery staff, Lee Cripps and the Exhibition selection committee for giving me this opportunity. It’s been a long time in the works and I am so happy that the show turned out far beyond my own expectations. Thank you to all my helpers and supporters. The exhibition will be up until March 3rd, 2019.
