I am thrilled to share the news that three of my works have been acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria. The three works, pictured below, are from my recent exhibition, ‘Layered’, with Kevin Boyd and Colin Hopkins, at Skepsi Gallery. It is a huge honour and I would like to thank Anna Maas of Skepsi Gallery and the generous philanthropist involved in making this happen. I hope I may be able to walk into the NGV one day and see the works, that would be a thrill.
UPDATE: Special Encore Workshop announced for Sunday 24th November 2019. See below.
I am very excited to be joining forces with Kevin Boyd and Colin Hopkins to run a workshop, to coincide with our upcoming exhibition LAYERED with Skepsi Gallery. Each of us will demonstrate and discuss our ideas, techniques and skills. Personally, I can’t wait to learn more about Colin and Kevin’s work, having seen their newest work develop over the past year.

Thrilled to share the news that 'Untamed - Bush Block' has been acquired by the City of Whitehorse, Box Hill, Melbourne. This work was a particular favourite from my Sep/Oct 2017 exhibition 'Ebb & Flow' with Skepsi Gallery at Malvern. It was inspired by a beautiful, densely wild and mysterious parcel of land. A big thanks to Skepsi Gallery, Sue McFarland and the City of Whitehorse Visual Arts Committee for selecting this work. Thank you also to my brother and sister-in-law for providing the inspiration!
