If you're new here, or you have been here a while and we haven't had the chance to meet, I'm Liv. In June this year, Rhonda Murray (An incredible artist and person) came to me asking if I would be interested in continuing in her footsteps as the owner of Kiama Art Workshops. I was so excited to jump on to this new journey and try my best to expand my knowledge of art whilst figuring out the ins and outs of running a business.
Seeing the work and connections that Rhonda had made over a decade of Kiama Workshops was so inspiring but led me to ask 'Can I do this?' and 'Will I be good enough?'. She did an incredible job.
Through planning and stepping out of my comfort zone, I've met artists from both local and outer areas I am been so proud to say that we were able to run 8 successful, fun, and creative workshops in differing styles such as wreath making, jewelry, and mixed media.
I am grateful for the support that the Kiama Art Workshops community has given me these last 6 months, and I am so excited to learn more of your names and see what you create.
Next year is filled with many new ideas brewing for KAW and personal projects on the way such as my first-ever solo exhibition and the creation of more murals in the local area.
Thank you to Rhonda, and all of you wonderful people in this beautiful creative space.
I hope to see you soon and wish you a wonderful and safe Christmas.
