"I love making art and experimenting with different mediums and wanted to share my enthusiasm with others. It's always so exciting to see what everyone makes, which is as individual as the person making it. Bridge Darebin and Heart Of Thornbury are welcoming spaces which helps bring all different kinds of people together, I love being able to facilitate that meeting and strengthen community."
