Each September we have a Carnival of Flowers here in Toowoomba. It’s my favourite time of year!

This year I was honoured to have my artwork featured on the cover of the souvenir lift out and get a mention inside as well.

Another highlight was being asked to host a Pop Up Paint Along for the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation.

The lovely Foundation team of Melanie, Tammy, Anna and Pam did all the legwork, and I designed a Carnival inspired painting for 48 of us to paint together. For this project I needed an entire squad of Beautiful Assistants – thank you Jenny, Janita, Wendy, Roma, Libby, Lauren and Diana – and together we coached all these lovely painters through to the end (which was lucky because I’d left my notes at home!).

Congrats to the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation on a terrific event and for giving me this terrific opportunity. I was just delighted with the results!
