After a meeting in December, gallery owner Lorraine Pilgrim has offered to represent my work in her studio gallery, Studio 87. The gallery is located on the Gold Coast, 87 Ridgeway Ave, Southport. Lorraine has had a highly successful career spanning forty years in private Art Galleries and Studios. She has worked with artists such as Michael Zavros and I very much look forward to a wonderful artist/gallery partnership.
Our first exhibition together will be her Christmas group exhibition titled ‘Christmas Bash/Knees Up’ on Saturday, December 15. Here’s a look at the pieces I’ll be showing. For a price list, contact Lorraine directly on her website.

The touring exhibition of the prestigious Queensland Regional Art Awards, ‘Connection’, will land in Brisbane at the Queensland State Library on Saturday 29th September. This exhibition has been touring around Queensland for the last six months and it’s making it’s way to the city. Come and check out my painting at the opening.
Curated by Michele Helmrich (Senior Curator, The University of Queensland Art Museum) this impressive exhibition features the diverse art work of 29 of the finest emerging and established artists working in regional and remote Queensland.
The theme of the exhibition ‘connection’asked artists to explore their relationship and associations with regional and remote Queensland and the people, places, history and stories that connect them with this unique place.
CEO of Flying Arts Stephen Clark said that after a successful tour around regional Queensland he was thrilled that ‘Connection’ was at last arriving for its Brisbane season.
“The QRAA encourages participation and recognises excellence” he said “and provides a wonderful opportunity for regional and remote artists to showcase their work to a wider Queensland audience”.
“While it’s in Brisbane there is also a great opportunity for city residents to see the work of artists who choose to live and work outside the mainstream”.
The Queensland Regional Arts Awards is a hallmark event produced by Flying Arts which for more than 40 years has been providing visual arts development services throughout regional and remote Queensland.
The official launch of the exhibition, to be opened by the Hon Ros Bates MP Minister for Science, IT, Innovation and the Arts will take place at The Studio, State Library of Queensland on Saturday 29th September at 4 pm.
The launch will be preceded by a public program that includes a forum on the topic ‘creativity and the power to connect’ (2pm) and a Floor Talk by curator Michele Helmrich (3.30 pm).
Great news! One of my pieces has made it as a finalist into the Heysen Prize, a national art prize for the interpretation of place. If you are in the Adelaide area, get down to the Hahndorf Academy at 3pm on Saturday October 6, 2012 to see the winner announced.
Due to technological and cultural shifts, the way people see the world is changing. Through constant contact with computers, we are quickly becoming accustomed to a new kind of imagery. ‘Every Place and No Place’ explores the essence of a landscape filtered through digital imagery on textured, painterly canvases. I aim to achieve a dance with control and the serendipitous nature of expressive painting. There is an ethereal and sublime quality in digital video or photography when the medium corrupts. This effect reminds me of recalling a place from our past and the distortion that happens with memory.
White Canvas Gallery is hosting a group exhibition of selected artists. I’m going to be showing a few pieces there alongside some other great artists.
