It was August 2005 when I first started The Alchemist, and now almost 7 and a half years later, I’m shutting it down. Time for changes and renewals. It’s been exciting, challenging at times, but overall a very rewarding experience for me. I have had an awesome time working and at the same time, trying to make it work.
I want to thank all our clients who have been through with us. Thank you for the work, the trust and everything in between.
I’m off to do my Masters in Fine Arts at The University of Auckland (Elam School of Fine Arts) for one year. Not sure what’s gonna happen afterwards, but for now, it’s going to be an exciting and regenerating one-year experience.
Our last day of work on 20 Garrett Street is 12th of February. We’re having goodbye drinks and an Art Sale on the 13th, starting from 4:30pm (till the 17th), so if you’re reading this, come say goodbye and wish me luck. I’ll still be around for a week, but leave for Auckland on the 22nd of February. Antony is going to work at Capiche design, in case you’re looking for a design studio to take over from the work that we’ve been doing.
I also want to extend my gratitude to everyone who worked with me during those 7 and a half years:
- Neil Sandbrook
- Tony Anderson
- Antony Brown
- Victoria Kay (now Upton)
- Hannah Ngai
- Anoushka Isaac
- Michael Mudge
- Michael Wilson
- Sarah Brueckner
- Jonathon Toon
- Alison Quodling
- Amy Moffatt
Thank you for putting up with me and I hope the experience was a good one.
I will keep this website on, as long as I can, you can also head on to my personal website and read about what’s happening with me. I’ll still be on my old email and mobile if you need to get in touch.
