I had a great time at the Matchbox Studios launch party last night! There were lots of people in the new shop on Cuba St, enjoying the art in the gallery and the hand-crafted gifts in the boutique.

There was a wide range of artworks on display, from encaustic wax-paintings, oil paintings, to mixed media sculpture.

There were local brands Stokes and Tuatara beer available for refreshment, but I tried the delicious Six Barrel Soda Co. cola. It was a great opportunity to break out my new Rubik’s Cube bag, and I even got my portrait done!

Local photographer Matt Fannin was there, and thanks to him I have photos of my portrait being drawn! (See below)

Matchbox Studios is open every day except Monday, and I will be refreshing the stock in my booth again this week as quite a bit was sold at the launch party last night!
