A small but thrilling pop up exhibition is currently on display at Traffic Jam Galleries – works by Pat Hall entitled FIRST BLOOM.
Pat Hall was born in Kent, England in 1963. She completed her Honours Degree in Graphic Design at Brighton University in 1985 before working as a designer in London. After immigrating to Australia in 1991 she worked as an illustrator for many years and now paints full time from her home studio in Mitchelton, Queensland.
