‘I am so excited to be premiering my brand new show, Bricktionary: The Interactive LEGO® brick Exhibition to HOTA on the Gold Coast!  
This exhibition is based on my new book, The Bricktionary, and is all about using LEGO bricks to inspire and celebrate the power of imagination. With over 150 models to inspire you, thousands of LEGO® bricks to build with and 6 all-new build zones (including an Earthquake challenge!), I can’t wait to see what Queenslanders create!’
