June 2022

June has been an exciting (and busy) time for me!

First, I have achieved Fellow status of the Australian Society of Marine Artists!

It’s an honour and a privilege to be included in this select group of the very best marine artists in the country!
It’s really very humbling to know that the Fellows voted for me to join the fold. This is a lovely birthday present indeed!

Second, an invitation for a residency at the New England Art Gallery & Museum in Armidale!

I am so excited to do this. It will be my very first residency, and even more special is that I was invited (I didn’t apply).
I will be away exploring the New England in late July and the work created will result in a solo show at NERAM in late September.
Details to follow…!

AND… almost all my paintings have 🔴  SOLD OUT at the Moree Gallery!

I’m very lucky to have such a great relationship with the Moree Gallery (they have supported me for quite a few years now).
If you are heading up that way on a road trip, it’s a “must do” to drop into the Gallery and spend some time in this friendly Art Deco town.
There will be a new collection of my paintings in the Gallery in October/November, so keep and eye out!
More amazing news to follow soonish… I hope!

I was invited to take part in a small group show at the Weswal Gallery, Tamworth in March.
It’s a lovely gallery set high at the end of Brisbane Street (and with a great cafe!). Kate, the owner, was very generous to show me around and chat about the broad range of her artists and our group show which was called “Streets of My Town”. In my case that’s actually “suburb” but that was ok.

The interesting thing in a show – to me anyway – is how different artists approach the same subject. I love that.
🔴  Both paintings sold in the exhibition. A big thank you Weswal Gallery!
