It is hard to believe we are in October already. It has been an incredibly busy year. I am excited to present my latest show in Sydney next week ‘Tapestry’. The new work seems to have been influenced by my new environment in The Netherlands with a cooler colour palette from the past and the global instability that surrounds us at present – no matter where you live! If you missed Tilt at Manly don’t worry you will get to see it at the same time as Tapestry. The two shows have been made to work as a connected sequence of works. I hope if you are in the region you will check it out. Details are below. 2018 is already shaping up to be a very exciting year with shows planned for Singapore, Berlin, Netherlands and Melbourne including new works in glass, a first for me. As they say it is good to be busy!

Donations – please support!
With the subject matter of my latest exhibitions relating to the refugee crisis happening all over the world both myself and Neville French have decided to donate all proceeds of sales for 3 artworks to go to Doctors without Borders. Of course this is not possible without the generous help of Arthouse Gallery and Fidoso Framing by also waving their own fees on these works. If you would like to support this amazing organisation please contact Arthouse Gallery to see the artworks for sale.

Women’s Club Commission
In July it was a great honour to celebrate the hanging of a recent commission by the Women’s Club inaugural Art Collection for their beautiful club rooms in the heart of Sydney. The Women’s club has a rich history of supporting and promoting professional women from 1902 to the present day and they have now decided to annually invite a female artist to create an artwork for their collection. To find out more about the club go to:http://www.thewomensclub.com.au
Acquisitions: AGNSW and Mildura Arts Centre
Recently the Art Gallery of NSW (AGNSW) and the Mildura Arts Centre have acquired new prints and paintings for their collections. Hooray!
For all the Melbourne people out there I am happy to report I have joined Gallerysmith in North Melbourne. A solo show is planned with them in 2018 so stay tuned! But for now all the hard work of 2017 comes into focus as the Manly Art Gallery & Museum exhibition opens. A huge thank you must go out to Chapman & Bailey for yet another great job and their amazing bespoke tables that will grace the installation at Manly. Also a huge shout out to Arten Framing for their expert help and production of the digital artworks for the show. And who could forget Neville French. The best ceramicist in the world perhaps – certainly the most patient! It is all the ‘behind the scenes’ work that will make this show hopefully very memorable for all who visit. Please come along. I am super excited about it!
