The "Preachers daughter"

In 1999 I purchased this painting
preachers daughter
from a young art school graduate in Adelaide and I have been curious as to what ever happened to her and also I wanted to make sure I had the right name. I have just tracked down the artist after 7 years and discovered it was Hayley Arjona. She has won numerous awards and scholarships including the 1999 -2000 Australian Postgraduate Award, for Master of Fine Art, Victorian College of the Arts, 1999 The Corporation of the City of Adelaide Award, Helpmann Academy, South Australia; South Australian Youth Arts Board Artists in Studios Grant, Experimental Art Foundation, South Australia. Her work is held in many collections including The Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide SA She has had many solo exhibitions:
2006: Boom festival. Idanha a nova, Portugal
2006: Une Femme + Un Chien, mural at Cafe Le Chien, Seddon Vic. 2002: Harmoniums, Six24Seven, Melbourne. 2000: Love Me, PB Art Gallery, Swinburne University, Prahran campus, Vic; Hayley Arjona, Penthouse and Pavement, Carlton Vic. 1999: Gold Card 1, Experimental Art Foundation, Adelaide SA.
