2016 ETA Awards
Lead Judge Technical Excellence Category
Friday October 21 2016
I had an AWESOME night last Friday! Not only was I incredibly honoured to be chosen as the lead judge for the Technical Excellence category, I also had the opportunity to meet and hand out awards with some incredibly talented and successful artists; all of which I have been admiring for a long time. To be up there with the likes of Alex Garant, Richert Ahnert, and Lee Howard is beyond gratifying. And the cherry on top? I got to dress up like XENA! My all time favourite kick ass female warrior princess hero! The theme of the event was "Gala Of Heroes" and we were invited to dress up. You don't have to tell me twice! (lol) It really couldn't have been any better! A big huge congratulations to all the emerging artists who placed and won awards! You guys have got major skills! For those who didn't, don't fret because you were all incredibly talented and with hard work and dedication you will continue to be Thriving Artists! :D
