Catherine Livingstone AO - 20/20 National Portrait Gallery, Canberra

Over two nights, celebrating twenty years with twenty new portrait commissions

Thursday 18 October - Unveiling and Dinner

So fortunate to meet and work with this incredible woman, Catherine Livingstone AO. Us tonight at the unveiling of hers and 19 other new portrait commissions, 20/20 celebrating 20 years of the National Portrait Gallery Canberra. Very important to mention that this was supported by an extremely generous group of philanthropists, in my case dear Tim Fairfax AC pictured here. Though the highlight of the night for me was sitting right in front of the most sublime performance by Jessica Mauboy.
