Friday September 23rd 2016

I am incredibly honoured to have been given the role of "Lead Judge" for the 'Technical Excellence' category of the ETA Awards​ (Emerging Toronto Artists Awards) this year. I was also asked to be a guest speaker at the ETA Pre-Show event on the "Business Of Art" which was a very nerve wracking experience for me (being very shy and introverted) but I think it went rather well and it showed me I have a lot of valuable knowledge and experience to share. Here are just a few snippets from the night, first of my speech and second of me judging the artworks. I must say that the collection of work being presented at the ETA's this year is MIND BLOWING! The talent in this city is just incredible! I included some of my favourite pieces near the end of the video but I have to admit there were SO many that I loved that I wasn't able to include. Everyone who is a part of this event should be proud of themselves! :)
