Artist in Residency at Coorparoo State School

This year we had a strong focus on drawing and the habit of keeping a visual diary. Sketchbooks @ School was hugely successful and many happy drawings later the children went home with their very own sketchbook and hopefully a new enthusiasm for drawing.

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.
