In early September I took myself on an Accompanied Adventure, a new travel group initiated by artist Ingrid Bowen. I have never been to Alice Springs before and was eager to see the centre. We spent time at the Araluen Arts Centre for the Desert Mob 2019 exhibition and market day and a night viewing Desert Song. Highlights on the trip (beyond the landscape which honestly was so empowering and rich), were meeting some of the locals who shared their Arts including the Hermannsburg Potters, and the Tjanpi Desert Weavers. There is so much I need to analyse from this trip so this post will be just a minuscule of what I took in.
Here are a few recent works I have available on paper. Please note that selected works have a free shipping code PAPERSHIPFREE
Coming up soon I will be having a small group show at Side Gallery in Brisbane and also be participating in a Summer Series Show at Boom Gallery in Geelong.
With summer holidays approaching, I will be spending some time exploring northern NSW and I’ll be paying particular attention to the Birdlife.
Recently I became aware of a collaborative project about migratory Shoreline Birds, called Overwintering. Artist, Kate Gorringe-Smith has initiated this mapping project and around 150 artists from NZ and Australia are involved, producing prints on their observations of these birds. I’ve been wanting an excuse to get back into some printmaking so this will be the perfect trigger. When I first started painting years ago, birds were often the subject matter of my work and here where I live and work I constantly pay attention to the local avians coming and going.
