Public Art Commission

The Mater Hospital Springfield through Independant Arts Management have commissioned 12 works for the hospital rooms. An artist in residence project with local school, St Peter’s Lutheran saw us brainstorming ideas about birds and what they might collect, drawing them and then making our own birds from paper and wire.

I am involved in a new venture coming soon called Art500. It’s a unique website that features original contemporary artworks from Australian artists. Every quality art work available on this site will be for sale for $500 or less.

The artists taking part are all professional Australian artists with exhibiting history and formal qualifications. Their work is wonderful and varied, they are also lovely people and artists that I admire. I am very pleased to be a part of this venture and I am sure you won’t be disappointed if you wished to join the Art500 mailing list.

Next Solo show in May

I am currently working towards a new body of work entitled Vogels en Dingen (Birds and Things) which will open on the 30th May with my dealer Lorraine Pilgrim. It continues the fascination with collections and the birds who might hoard them.

Thanks to the generosity of a NAVA and Arts Qld Travel Bursary last weekend I was able to attend Future/Forward at Carriageworks, Sydney. This is the first National Visual Arts Summit to be held in Australia. With over 40 speakers, including artists, curators, writers, academics, journalists and thought leaders from legal, media and ethics backgrounds the idea was to generate ongoing debates of the future of the Australian visual arts sector. I enjoyed the 2 days, mainly the opportunity to meet and discuss issues with fellow artists.
