Earlier this week, I enjoyed helping to hang some work in this group exhibition that I am taking part in. It is at the Petrie Terrace Gallery, home of the Royal Queensland Art Society. The exhibition, "Gems from the Closet" aims to showcase a variety of contemporary art styles from a number of artists, in a range of mediums. The result is an exciting and eclectic display of original artworks for sale that should have broad appeal for discerning art lovers. The exhibition runs from 14th - 24th August and is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10.00am - 3.30pm. There is lots of parking in the surrounding streets. Well worth a look if you are in the area. You might find an art gem to take home and treasure :)
I recently entered two of my paintings in the Royal Queensland Art Society's Members Annual 2019 competition and exhibition at the Petrie Terrace Gallery in Brisbane. I was surprised and happy to be awarded Second Prize in the Works on Canvas and Board section for my painting "Boiling Pot Pandanus", pictured here. This painting and my other work "Pandanus View" will be on display and available for purchase at the Gallery until 4th August 2019. The gallery is open Tuesday to Sunday - 10.00am to 3.30pm. There is parking available on Petrie Terrace or in the surrounding streets. It is a varied and interesting exhibition of the work of some very talented local artists. Well worth a look if you are in the area :-)

I am excited to announce that I will be part of a group exhibition at the end of May with two very talented artists. I will be at the Opening Night on 31st May and am also manning the gallery for a number of days with my fellow artists during the two week exhibition. New work will be available for purchase as well as some of my older pieces and quality art prints and reproductions. All art lovers are welcome and I hope to see some of you there :-)
The WOW – Works of Women art exhibition was a great success. It was a pleasure and very inspiring to work with six very talented and lovely female Brisbane artists. I would like to say a special thank you to Mark Lutz and the Gallery 6/31 team whose efforts made the whole project of putting on an exhibition, a relatively simple and stress free experience. Gallery 6/31 is a great new gallery space, with every facility that an artist needs to put on a successful show. I would highly recommend it. Art House Reproductions provided some excellent fine art reproductions to add to my part of the exhibition. They also produced some gorgeous “crystal” blocks for the show, pictured here. This is the first time I have used my reproduced art works with this product. I liked the result so much that I will now be adding them to my available reproduction range on this website. Just go to my Reproductions page to see details on sizing and pricing :-)
Here is a sneak preview of a painting I am currently working on for my upcoming exhibition on the 9th and 10th of November. It is inspired by a visit to the beautiful Noosa National Park earlier this year. There is still a lot of work to do, but I am hoping to have it finished in time to show along with several other originals and reproductions.
I am excited to announce that some of my original artworks and reproductions will be available to view and purchase in this upcoming group exhibition - "WOW - Works of Women". I will be exhibiting with six other talented Brisbane artists. We didn't set out to make this an all female exhibition, however it just evolved that way. Now we have decided to run with the theme and celebrate some amazing local female talent. Opening night is 6:30pm - Friday 9th of November, light refreshments will be provided. All are welcome.
