HOW DID YOU SPEND YOUR SATURDAY NIGHTS IN LAUNCESTON? 


What lessons did you take away from your days at Stompin? 

There is so much I have learnt from my Stompin experience… the first thing was that I could believe in myself… and to trust what I had to say and what I felt… what I learnt from Stompin was how to be with people… how to work together… how to have compassion and hold space for other people... I feel lucky to have encountered a creative process and company and a series of mentors that have such great values.

WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT YOUR FUTURE? 
What excites me is that I am going to still be an artist… it’s a little terrifying as well though... I wonder what it will be like ten to fifteen years down the track in the world and what it will be like to be an artist then… travelling around and world and living in different places... maybe that won't be possible anymore... maybe I’ll move back to Tasmania… what excites me are the possibilities and the potential.
