Peter Ciemitis

The very talented Peter Ciemitis has been selected as a finalist in the Black Swan Prize for a portrait of my very own battered mug. I am really humbled to have an artist I genuinely look up too choose to paint me and am completely in awe of the finished work, not to mention the obvious massage to my ego in being chosen as a subject! You can view more of Peter’s work here.
