Baby steps towards something BIG

I had a great year. Great as in crazy and insane to the max.
It's been almost a year since I last posted on my blog. A lot happened in those 12 months of absence. While I was MIA in the blog world, life on the whole was pretty full on. To summarise it all..I graduated with a post graduate teaching degree from Melbourne university, got my teaching registration, I started taking road trips to different cities of Australia with my hubby and son, fell pregnant, moved house close to my due date, had a beautiful baby boy and now that my baby is three months old I have just enrolled in a fabulous, life changing e-course Make Art That Sells by one of the top illustrator agent Lilla Rogers.
I have struggled a lot to come to terms with my identity as an artist and to find a place for my art and my creative expression. I am finding myself getting excited about my art again. I am thinking about my artwork all the time and can't wait to get back to my *studio-space*.
This 5 week-long intensive course offers expert advice and industry insight from Lilla Rogers herself is so packed full of advice that is pure GOLD. Having said that, great advice and information doesn't come cheap..and it's never ever for free. I was saving money to buy a printmaking press for myself but when I came across I couldn't resist taking the plunge. As a matter of fact, it was a *birthday present* I bought for myself..an investment in my artistic career. Massages and spas can wait ;)
So if you are a budding illustrator and designer and not sure which industry is right for you then have a look at this fantastic opportunity to learn from the best in the industry. The next intake is in October this year, head over to the website for further details.
