I was so happy to be included as a finalist of the 'Little Things Art Prize' at the beautiful little Saint Cloche Gallery in Paddington Sydney.  My painting of my son and his dog on a camping trip to Hill end titled 'Boy and Bear'  was a simple image as a reminder of the little simple things in life that bring so much joy.

I spent a few weeks in the Central Desert in the remote community of Yuendumu working at the Warlukurlangu Art Centre. What an experience to be on the beautiful arid desert lands of Warlpiri country and to be immersed in the creative activity of the communities artists.  So enriching and inspiring.

Was thrilled to be included in the Paddington exhibition of the Lethbridge Small Scale Art Award - the biggest Art Prize for  small works!  Here is an install shot with my painting hanging in great company.

I was fortunate to spend a few days with some friends at the studio of Amanda Penrose-Hart in Sofala.  I just love Sofala and Hill End and Amanda supported us as we busied ourselves painting en plein air.

I submitted a landscape work on paper to the Singleton Art Prize this year and went on a day trip to see the exhibition, and met up with some fellow artists from NOKK collective en route.                                                                                  wills singleton                                                                                                                                                                                   




I had two paintings hanging in the Camden Art Prize this year. I always enjoy entering this annual event as my parents live nearby. Dad is also an artist and participates in the local category.

Over the last year I have been part of an online group hosted by Felicity O'Connor to support emerging women artists.  In celebration of the creative alliances formed we were involved in a group exhibition at Art Gallery On Darling in Balmain.  It was a great success for everyone involved and a wonderful testament to the fruitfullness of supporting other women in the arts.

I made a contribution  to ME Artspace fundraiser 'Wish You Were Here - The Secret Postcard Show'. Postcard sized artworks were donated anonymously by local and international artists to raise money for the Fred Hollows Foundation.  Running from 13 March to 30 march at ME Artspace in St Leonards, the exhibition will showcase the works of over 60 artists, whose secret identity is only to be revealed when supporters have made their purchase.

A wonderful night was had at the opening of postFRESH. Thankyou to all who came and supported the artists and collectors who bought work....

PostFRESH is an artistic concept proposed to question cultural attitudes that
emphasise the values of youth and perceived newness in the visual arts. PostFRESH
presents the work of five women who have been there, done that and seen a lot. The
artists’ rich and full life experiences and remarkable transformations have enriched
their perspectives resulting in imagery that gets to the core. Rebelliousness is staged
as the possibility of seeing things differently, tapping into the quiet, understated power
of the artists’ interior lives and relationship with the world

Zorica Purlija and I were interviewed by Nicole Beck on 2SER radio about our upcoming group exhibition and postFRESH concept. Here is the link to the live recording ....




My little oil on wood panel was a finalist in the annual Waverley Woollhara 9x5 Landscape Prize.  I dropped by on opening night to view all the wonderful paintings.  This work 'Land of the Long White Cloud' inspired from a recent trip to NZ sold at the exhibtiion and I am now tempted to return to the imagery of this sublime dramatic landscape to create some more postcard sized memories.

Thrilled to have my painted image shown as a projected video work alongside other artists contributing visual responses to the deeply disturbing individual leaked Nauru Files, at the 'All We Can't See' exhibition in Melbourne. The objective is to illustrate these stories through creative expression, using art to shed light on all we cant see within Australian draconian offshore detention policies.




Happy to be part of this new artist collective which is an intiative born from some connections formed in the Masters of Art Course at UNSW Art and Design.....

Not the Kool Kids confidently describes the rejection of egotism, pomposity and ageist sentiment. NOKK is a collective which identifies with this dismissal, assembling a unique group of multi-disciplinary artists ranging in age and gender, who as creative allies come together to inflame, agitate and blissfully excite.
