I am honoured to be on a mission to bring art to space, and space to art. As the first Australian female astronaut candidate, and an artist, I prepare to live underwater, and create art amongst the stars. I am deeply grateful for your support and hope that together we can reach far beyond our present horizons, to boldly step forward in the new frontier with Australia in Space.
