  I personally would like to thank all who were involved for your encouragement and support whether professionally or personally. It was a trying time with the death of my Mother just days before the Melbourne Launch, Mum was so excited and was extremely creative artist in her own right . Thank you Dad for having the strength to be there for me along with my loving daughter Rachael.
