Arts Industry Champion
Shailer Park Q 4128
Rhiannon is the author of Logan's favourite fantasy detective series, The Wolflock Cases. From childhood she had a way with words but was told to "get a real job" as she grew up. Since growing up she realised that those successful in the arts straddled the fence between business owner and creative soul. She is resolute in her belief that all ambitious and dedicated artists, musicians, actors, writers and dancers can make their passion into a career with the right training and connections.
Logan is beautifully situated in the middle of two cities where arts thrive on the big screen and the music scene. Rhiannon believes that the heartbeat of Logan has the opportunity to send out the ripples of joy and connectedness from the rich cultural and creative community.
