Thank you everyone! It was a great night Friday and the exhibition launched without a hitch (I was a bit impressed with how calm I was). 

So many people came and such wonderful support was so lovely to see. A terrific endorsement for me and the past years work. The positivity in the room was palpable. 

Some major thank you's go to my wonderful family. Their help on the night was OUTSTANDING. It just wouldn't have worked without them, I love them to bits and they are amazing. To those who've all been on this journey with me, my sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews, not to mention my friends... "Thanks" doesn't cover how grateful I am and how special you all are to me - not even close.

In the end, we raised a little som'n-som'n for WHISE which, when the exhibition winds up, I'll pass onto them.

And if you want to see it all again in a less crowded environment, the Gallery is open on Saturday and Sunday from 10-4 until the 25th October. Tell your friends!

Oh, and I'm on Instagram now, you can follow me @_essayer - just like all the cool kids!
