BRONZE MEDAL DIPLOMA
After exhibiting in Paris last October I was nominated by a French delegate from the 'Societe of Arts, Sciences & Lettres, Paris' to be considered for an award.
A few weeks ago I received notification that I am to be awarded a 'Bronze Medal Diploma' acknowledging my work as a visual artist over the past decade!
This is a great honour! The Society takes into account the whole career and works of the artist, scientist or writer, and rewards them for their many years of often unrecognized achievements.
The award ceremony will be held in Paris on 16 June, 2012. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend as it is during my major exhibition in Sydney. I have received the medal which is very beautiful and my friend Ann, who lives in Paris, will collect the Diploma on my behalf.

Our July workshop was a great success, below are a few comments from students;
"Thank you and Faith once again for the workshop and taking time to pass on your knowledge. I would recommend the mixed media workshop to anyone who has a passion for creative art. I learnt so much in 2 days, the information given was just the right amount and not to much. I only wish the weekend could have been longer, as I was enjoying myself so much. The workshop has opened my eyes to new possibility's and has my creative mind working overtime. (Which is a wonderful thing)
Thank you once again. I look forward to attending more of your's and Faith's workshops in the future.
"Thank you so much for your email & notes. Before I say anything I want to thank you most sincerely for a great weekend - I'm still reeling from the impact & I love every moment of it.
I have to say that I was totally gobsmacked at the amount that you got through and the fact that
you were so well organized.
Olivia your (Faith too of course) workshop was like a breath of fresh air. I have no doubts that it will be a new begining for me. I must say that I find your paintings inspiring -
Thank You very much. It's given me a new lease of life.
Many Thanks & Best wishes to you both."
