Uncertain Times

In the current uncertain times and the longer term impact on artists like myself, any support that others give to any artist is much appreciated, and helps to keep the industry afloat until our society and economy returns to normal.

I am working on adding my artwork that I have available for sale on my website.  The galleries where my work currently hangs is doing the same. If you purchase through any of these outlets, you will be supporting not only artists but bricks and mortar galleries to stay in business.

Stay safe everyone, and thank you all for your support and encouragement.

Local Artist Local Content Exhibition

I was super excited to receive an Excellence Award in the Local Artist Local Content Exhibition, that is being held at the Caloundra Regional Gallery. The 40 finalists are all fantastic works of art and worthy of being on display, tough decision for the judge. My work, "Quiet Place, Mt Coolum" sold on the opening night too.

Christmas Time

With Christmas nearly upon us, I was inspired to embroider a piece which featured the beautiful little native wildflower called Christmas Bells. Their vibrant cheerful red and yellow appears so rarely, what with development overtaking their land and that they are one of our species interdependent on fire for reproduction.
Having the Glasshouse Mountains in the background here is a little symbolic, because where you see them from is now farmland, so it was a nostalgic imagination of what that particular spot I was standing on may have been like long before white settlers appeared.

Have a Merry Christmas and New Year to you all, and may 2020 bring protection to our wonderful flora and fauna to flourish and grow for future generations to enjoy.

Beaching About

Every so often I have a new favourite artwork that I have created, which I like to display in the lounge until it's time to go to the gallery to find a new home. Currently enjoying these two new favourites, and the great beaches we have here on the Sunshine Coast

The Holmes Prize for Realistic Australian Bird Art

For a second time running, I have been honoured to have been selected as a finalist in The Holmes prize for Realistic Australian Bird Art, with my work "Preening Pause", a portrait of a male Australian Wood Duck I met at the Mt Cootha Botanic Gardens earlier this year.

The exhibition is currently open until mid October, so if you are near Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, Maleny Qld, pop in and have a look, there are some stunning artworks on display.

I will be there on Saturday 21st September, with my sketchbook and pencils demonstrating the art of drawing birds, with a few little works for sale.
