When young artist Jai finished high school, he hoped to pursue his love of art…and he’s done just that!

Less than three years after graduating, Jai was offered a job at Monte Lupo Arts Studio as a Decorator’s Assistant, and he hasn’t looked back.

“I like my job,” the 20-year-old said. “I’ve learnt a lot since I’ve been here.”

Jai works two days a week at the Eight Mile Plains studio and picks up extra  hours during busy periods.

Not only does the supported employee like the independence of having a job, he also finds it very satisfying work. Most of Jai’s studio days are filled with painting various ceramic pieces for upcoming exhibitions.

He was involved in decorating pieces for Swell Sculpture Festival and the latest exhibition, Octopus’s Garden.

“I love to see the finished product,” the Access Arts student said.

As for his days off, Jai picks up his pencils to work on his drawings of ‘The Wild Triplets’, characters he has created that he will exhibit for the first time this month.

Multicap’s General Manager of Creative Arts Fiona said Jai was a wonderful addition to the creative team.

"He’s a talented young artist and I look forward to seeing where his career takes him,” she said.
