"I've loved being a member of Geelong Illustrators! I became part of the GI fam during a pretty tough time in my life. Creating and submitting artworks for group exhibitions and connecting with so many wonderful creatives has brought me a joy I can't explain enough. The space is so warming and judgement free, regardless of your age, skill, background ... anything! I always encourage creatives to join and will continue to do so! Thank you for everything."
