I’m so pleased to be selected as a finalist this year with my tiny painting The Pilot’s Seat!

This is the 3rd time I have been selected (I have submitted 4 times) – but this is special for me
as I am now an exhibiting member of the Australian Marine Artists Society (ASMA).
The ANL Marine Art Prize is an international competition promoting maritime and seafaring subjects in art,
hosted at the beautiful Mission to Seafarers Building in Melbourne’s Docklands (a wonderful opportunity
to see or purchase traditional and contemporary works from artists that have submitted from all around
the world). Entries this year have come from Spain, NZ, USA, Germany and every state in Australia.

MtSF is one of Australia’s oldest charities dating back to 1857 – its roots are steeped in a tradition
of care for the wellbeing of the seafaring community. About 1.4 million seafarers around the world
are responsible for 95% of world trade and they rely on the Mission to Seafarers services and facilities
when their ships are in port. The Mission provides community and support for seafarers who live
and work in often dangerous and isolated conditions at sea, sometimes for months at a time.

Winners will be announced on the opening night of the exhibition
on Thursday 3 October at 6pm. 

Tickets for opening night can be purchased from the Mission
(the exhibition is by gold coin donation to Seafarers).

The 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 swapstories 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.
