First Coat 2017 Mural
When I drive up the mountain to Toowoomba, it always feels like I am travelling beyond the clouds, to another world. The beauty and history of the town is what makes it unique and what most visitors really enjoy about the city. The annual Carnival flower festival also attracts a rich following and encompasses the colour of the city. I wanted to create a piece that showed my experience through my characters, floating above the clouds through a colourful magical land.
