WHAT’S GREAT ABOUT ADELAIDE
I enjoy Adelaide for it's charm and the easy going vibe it has. I usually bike to work and most things around the CBD are close at hand without a long commute. By car it's also easy to get out of the city, down to the beach or up to one of the cute little towns in the hills. The Adelaide lifestyle is great!

Happy people, lots of good movies and heaps of chocolate! 

ADVICE TO ASPIRING ARTISTS 
Keep learning as much as possible! It's great to know what your goal is, but don't let it make you miss out on opportunities in the beginning of your career. Enjoy what you do and take pride in your work, and remember it's always important to seek improvement and keep learning. A mentor is great, having more than one is awesome. Most things are possible if you want it and work for it!
