Valuing the Arts

By |February 26th, 2020|Uncategorized|0 Comments

How privileged I feel to have attended author Neil Gaiman’s talk at the Perth Festival on the weekend. He superbly translates thoughts into well crafted stories from paper to spoken word. His storytelling has the ability to transport us into his imaginary world. Mythological tales mixed with personal accounts of friends suffering from Alzheimer’s, along […]

Finding balance

By |February 5th, 2020|Creative|0 Comments

Keeping myself open to new experiences, new environments, new people and interacting with new objects brings with it a steady stream of new thoughts, new feelings and new ideas. It is these experiences which inform my art practice and help shape my creative output.

I’ve come to realise that my expectation to produce creative output on […]

What a busy 12 months it’s been and I’m appreciative of having a few days off to relax and reflect.

Through my art practice I participated in 18 group exhibitions including one in London, plus I completed several mural and public art commissions. With partners I started an exciting new public art consultancy business CURATE publik, […]

Last week I attended the openings of two art exhibitions in which I am an exhibitor. Containing a diversity of work in a variety of mediums, both shows were thoughtfully curated by Sandra Murray.

I was proud to be selected as one of 52 finalists in the Perth Royal Art Prize from 253 entries. It’s the […]

Kandinsky, Koons and Kubrick

By |September 10th, 2019|Creative|0 Comments

I’m reminded of how important it is to take time out from the humdrum of everyday life and recharge. I was fortunate enough to enjoy a whirlwind holiday in Europe recently. As an artist, taking in new cities, galleries and cultures is invaluable in terms of growth and inspiration. My trek took me to Zurich, […]

Hello 2019

By |March 4th, 2019|Art Exhibition, Murals, Public Art|0 Comments

It’s hard to believe we’re into March already! Reflecting on 2018 I realise what a busy year it was in terms of artistic output and projects. Speaking with a lot of other artists, most admitted to suffering from burnout at some stage, especially towards the end of the year. I intentionally held off on having […]

Meeting Val Lehman from Prisoner

Being an artist is an interesting vocation where you meet people from all walks of life. A few weeks back I saw an advert for art hire Perth and picked up the phone. This resulted in a meeting with one of my TV idols, Val Lehman (AKA Bea Smith from Prisoner). I […]

Don’t get too comfortable

I was thinking recently of one of the first times I painted live in public. It was the first time I had ever applied for an EOI as a live painter for hire and didn’t think I’d score the job. I was wrong. The client saw my brightly coloured abstract paintings and loved them. As […]

The ramblings of a non-starving artist

By |May 18th, 2016|Uncategorized|0 Comments

I certainly consider myself lucky in many respects. One of those aspects is to be working for myself as a graphic designer/marketer. While running my own business has its negatives (demanding clients, working on uncreative design projects which achieve a less-than-desired outcome, accounting, chasing payments etc) there are also positives which counteract. Such as allowing the freedom to instal […]
