10 Tiers For 10 Years

On Tuesday 7, September 2021, Gallery Girl turned ten! It is hard to believe that this blog started by a teenage girl the summer before leaving for university is now ten years old.

In the ten years that I have been Gallery Girl I have surpassed even my wildest dreams. I’ve curated exhibition internationally, travelled the world, and had my writing published everywhere from Dazed to Vogue. I’ve made life long friends and for that I am forever grateful. But now, here’s the scary bit…after ten crazy years, I feel that it is now time for me to take a step back from Gallery Girl and to explore other areas of my life. I will never delete this space and, who knows, one day I may return. But for now, it is time for me to check out of Gallery Girl, and check in to Lizzy.

Thank you for being with me on this incredible journey.

Xoxo, Gallery Girl
