In Spilt Ink, her very first exhibition, Annabelle Kirkpatrick will showcase some of her beautiful watercolour and illustration artwork. The exhibition, to be held at one of our favourite Brisbane spots, The Rabbit Hole Ideation Cafe, will showcase Annabelle's pieces, and will be supported by music from the very talented, Hailey Calvert.
We caught up with the artist before her big show, and chatted about the best part of being an artist, personal style, and her latest Brisbane discovery.
