I’m thrilled for my work Venerated to be selected as a Finalist in the @cityofgreatergeraldton Mid West Art Prize. Such a fun road trip to attend the opening on Saturday! These events provide an important opportunity for us artists to connect and chat face-to-face. It reminds me what a creative and supportive arts community we have in […]
It’s Not Always Obvious
Acrylic, aerosol and graphite on canvas
147 x 147cm
It’s Not Always Obvious which direction to take with a painting and sometimes it takes a direction of its own. Same goes for life. So many choices to make. With everything. Every day. It can be hard for many, but not many share this. The […]
It was an immense honour to be invited by the City of Karratha to be one this year’s judges in the Cossack Art Award, recognised as the most isolated acquisitive art exhibition in the world and the richest award of its kind in Australia. I’ve been a participating artist in the awards a few times, […]

I was successful in my submission to the City of Vincent to exhibit in a series of light boxes on Beaufort Street. I’ve created a new series of digital art pieces based on photographs taken in Perth and surrounding areas. It’s been a really fun project to work on and I’ve just made a video […]
My blog has been a little quiet of late, but that doesn’t mean I’ve been quiet! I’ve set up UnchARTed Collective, and Australian artisan gallery featuring over 40 different artists. It’s great to share, interact and colaborate with so many creative people. You can now view may art 6 days a week – woot! If […]

‘Attitude’. Acrylic and aerosol on paper. 100 x 70cm.
