Thank you to all the artists who are part of Home is more than a place, and for sharing your work with us. Our lives are richer because of the continued contributions by artists, and art that comforts, challenges, and holds a mirror to the issues of the world, now more so than ever.

Thank you to Claire Watson and the team at NETS Victoria for inviting me to participate in the 50/50 project, and your continued support for independent curators and artists.

Thank you to Joshua White and Ian Brilley at Hamilton Gallery for enthusiastically supporting the project from day 1, and for making me feel so welcome visiting your collection both virtually and in person. I hope one day we can work together again.

Last but not least, thank you to my friends and family, your ongoing love and support held me during the challenges of 2020. In particular I’d like to extend my thanks to Malcolm, Rosie and Rocket for teaching me that home is truly where the heart is.
