March 2018

As part of Art Month Sydney, over 100 inner west art studios and galleries open their doors
during this annual Art Trail. It’s a rare opportunity for the public to see inside working studios
and chat with the artists direct, and perhaps even purchase an affordable work of art.
The Art Trail stretches over 2 weekends in March. Included are many tours, workshops,
artists talks, and exhibition openings and most events are free. More info @innerwest_council

This work, Balmain to Barangaroo is from my Very Small Paintings series and sold during
the trail, along with quite a few others. Thank you all who dropped by my studio on Saturday,
your purchases and lovely compliments!

This year, my studio was only open for one day, so on Sunday I became “a tourist” and visited
a few studios myself. Something I actually never get to do! I love this community event as artists
meet and get feedback from the public, but also engage with other artists from all disciplines as well.
Looking forward to next year!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stepping Stone House Regatta is an annual fundraising event hosted by the
Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron, Kirribilli. It’s a fun day for sailors with a competitive race
followed by an evening at the club to swap stories and enjoy a casual dinner and prize giving.

Stepping Stone House has been helping young people at risk, through no fault of their
own, to rebuild their lives, for over 29 years and RSYS has been a proud supporter since 2000.

My painting, On the Breeze, was inspired by images of various twilight regattas held by the RSYS.
It was auctioned at the post-regatta dinner this evening, and I’m very thrilled to say the result
was exceptional! Well done to all concerned, for a truly great outcome for this awesome cause.
