Bye bye Melbourne! I'm gonna miss you!
After spending nearly one and a half years in the wonderful city of Melbourne, Australia, I have finally said goodbye.
Melbourne, with your streets filled with mural, graffitti and wall art, your dozens of gorgeous local cafes (L'atelier de Monsieur Truffe), the best coffee outside of Italy (Seven Seeds), fantastic earth-friendly, healthy food (Yong Green Food), a thriving regional contemporary art community with museum presence (NGV), random, amazing acts of craft and crochet, cast-iron lace balconies, the uplifting scent of eucalyptus trees, all things stylish, and fantastic people, I miss you.
As I return to Toronto, Canada, I would like to say a very special thank you to all the wonderful people and businesses that made me feel welcome in Australia and helped me navigate this new city: Global Arts Projects, Blak Dot Gallery, Fitzroy Stretches, St. Luke Artist Colourmen, Hayden Golder Photography, The Orange Mystique, The Highway Gallery, Frames Readymade, TextaQueen, Sangeeta Sandrasegar, Mark the Mechanic, fellow artists and friends. I couldn't have been there without you!
