In 2011 I was invited to take part in the First Annual International Meeting of Naïve Artists, hosted by the Mirko Virius Gallery and the Croatian Association Naïve Artists. I was the only foreign artist to participate, spending the day demonstrating my painting process alongside established Croatian artists Katarina Krvarić and Milan Nadj amongst others. As a result of this event my Night Owls painting was inducted into the permanent collection of the Croatian Association of Naïve Artists.
