It is a work in progress but will be displayed in Brisbane at the Philip Bacon Galleries. She says, 'It's (Painting is) not for the money. It's when you walk in and you see the paintings on the wall for the first time, away from where you've been painting. That's where it's a learning curve. It's like seeing them for the first time.'
