Delighted to be included in the @fleurieu_art_prize this year. 
When I began painting ‘Intangible Mysteries of a Sense of Place’ I was interested in creating a subtle and ambiguous work, binding figure and land as one. As the work unfolded, however, this semi-transparent #ghostly figure wove into larger metaphors of land, pain and violence.

Almost finished, just a few more glazes....
It has been such an honour and privilege to have been approached by @fleurwood_ and her sisters to paint a younger version of their mother for her 80th birthday. Lorraine Wood is the author of Love & Addiction and the co-founder and owner of one of Australia’s most respected addiction and mental health hospitals South Pacific Private. Lorraine made it her life’s mission to help others and their families and has said “you can reach out for help, that recovery is possible and that no matter how dark the night there will be a new dawn.”

In 2016 I was deeply honoured to be the recipient of the @moranprizes . 
It cannot be stressed enough that the #abundance of time, (that so many artists need) allowed me precious studio days to focus on my work which has been crucial to my growth and journey. Whilst this time is coming to an end the relationships I have formed continue to blossom. It has been a great privilege meeting wonderful people, two of which are
fellow #SouthCoast creatives @richard_moorecroft and @alisonmackayartist who are warm, generous, talented and fabulously interesting. They came for a visit for tea, cake & chats and wrote an article about me in @southcoaststylemagazine #thankyou
In memory of that fabulous time I sit with tea, cake and mag on a #wintersday thinking of the warmth that has touched my world and whilst I might still see monsters in my tea reading I see angels in my life.
