MiniGraff Update

Just a quick note to let you know i've just finished some fresh
artwork at the CLOCK HOTEL in Surry Hills, SYDNEY. The artwork is on the ground level & features an abstract forest with little bits & pieces. It looks great & has transformed the space from an office to a lounge room!

If you're in & around MELBOURNE or SYDNEY over the next month, look out for the Running Couple. They're busy running from Koala Kong & trying not to be Chicken Feed!!
