Of course there is the usual gang of  Guy Pearce, Marta Dusseldorp, Shane Jacobson, Aaron Pedersen & Roy Billing but Dead Point also has a guy by the name of Barry Humphries, The delightful Deborah Mailman & Kat Stewart, Vince Colosimo & John Jarratt.

True Self 2013 + The Jacky Winter Group + Melbourne GPO

A while back during my hiatus from blogging I was in an exhibition called True Self at Melbournes GPO.

I was paired with visual artist Miranda Skoczek and were asked to collaborate on an image that reflected ‘True Self’. A massive thanks goes to the Jacky Winter Group, Monica Laskowski and Sarah Ewing for putting me forward xx Here is a little bit about the exhibition; The exhibition utilises the core element of collaboration, with visual artists creating works that are then captured ‘in camera’ by a photographer. The result is 10 large scale, unique pieces of fine art photography, each drawing upon the themes of positive self-image. Featuring 20 of Australia’s most cutting edge and contemporary fine artists and photographers working together;

Beci Orpin + Sean Fennessy
Dylan Martorell + Clare Rae
Kate Banazi + Bec Parsons and Bart Celestino
Kate Tucker + Brooke Holm
Miranda Skoczek + Lachlan Moore
Misha Hollenbach + Warwick Baker
Nathan Gray + Jesse Marlow
Sonia Rentsch + Willem-Dirk Du Toit
Tai Snaith + Jo Duck
Tin&Ed + Derek Henderson

On Friday night at Rokeby Studio we were lucky enough to host ‘Fierce Women 2013′.

This year, the Fierce Women committee delivered an amazing fundraising event aimed at empowering the modern women.

The night was aimed at inspiring women to fulfill their potential as entrepreneur’s and live productive fruitful lives no matter what the universe throws at you.

There were a list of speakers who I will add shortly but one stand out was Belle Gibson. Her personal & incredible story of determination, rising above adversity, defying the doctors prgnosis’ & creating a chart topping #1 app The Whole Pantry left the guests speechless. Her delivery was emotional, honest and grounded resulting in standing ovation.  As well as the awesome speakers there was an auction of elaborate donated prizes & dinner by Tommy Collins.

Oh….and did I mention Megan Washington popped in to entertain the ladies as well!

Here is a run down of the wonderful women behind this charitable event.
