A big month! :)

February is justabout over and it’s been a big month. A few weeks ago was my one year anniversary on the Bubble, and what a ride it’s been!!! I’ve met some amazing people here, been incredibly inspired, and received an overwhelming amount of support and encouragement. I’ve progressed from being an occasional hobby photographer to someone who lists her profession as “Visual Artist”, who works at said profession almost full time, who does paid commissions (imagine that!!), and who has one solo, self-curated exhibition under her belt and another one on the schedule – and none of that would have happened without RedBubble and the support and inspiration this community gives its members!

This past week also marked a small milestone of my time here on the bubble, 300 features! Feature 300 was my fun image “Singing In The Rain”, featured in New Zealand-Made. Features 300-308 are below:

And asif all that wasn’t enough, I completed my first ever solo exhibition at the amazing Salsa Divas event at the Wellington James Cook Grand Chancellor Hotel. The event was a fabulous pampering weekend centered around women and Salsa dancing; participants were able to get a half hour massage, a manicure, do workshops in various aspects of Salsa (like costuming, make up, footwork, spinning to name a few), buy fabulously sexy Salsa costumes and dancing shoes and indulge the senses by spending a little time in the room set aside to be my gallery for the weekend. The weekend was amazing, and my exhibition was a huge success. I sold a few pieces, made some great contacts and got great feedback. Photos of my exhibit are on my Facebook fan page.

Now, I’m sitting back and relaxing for a bit and enjoying creating for the sake of creating, and taking the time to have a good look around RB and catch up on some of the work I missed while I was too busy to pay attention. Thank you guys for all your support and encouragement, I can’t wait to see what 2010 brings for us all!
