May 2017, NEWS

 It’s an exciting time for me at the moment with much happening artistically: I’ve been busy preparing for not one but two exhibitions – in Fremantle and Wanneroo, as well as the Lawley Art Auction for Mt Lawley Senior High School.  And I’ve also got new work almost ready to hang in The David Giles Art Studios…  So, no watercolor demo this month I’m afraid, but I hope you make time to experience some of my creations somewhere…

Artists From The Freedom School At The Moores ‘The Inner Self’

Opening Night (NEXT WEEK) Friday 12 May 6-8pm.
Exhibition open daily from 10am-4pm, on show from 12 – 28 May.
Over 20 artists exhibiting.  Below is a sneak peak of what I’ll have on show and for sale.

I’ll be manning the exhibition on Wednesday 17th from 10-4. 
I’d love to have a chat, come and see me and all our work, INSPIRATION GALORE!

Come to The Lawley Art Auction 2017

on Saturday 10th June where you will be able to bid for Indigo Landscape’ as well as artworks from many outstanding Western Australian artists.

The flagship art auction for Mt Lawley Senior High School is in it’s 13th year and the artwork for selection will no doubt be of the highest quality again this year. It is the premier fundraising event for students in the Specialist Visual and Performing Arts and Music programmes at MLSHS, with all funds raised providing the students with course enhancements.

Woman of Seeds

Some of you may have watched my youtube video of ‘Woman of Seeds’ as she was painted.  She’ll be on show & for sale during May/June at the

2017 City of Wanneroo Community Art Awards & Exhibition

She’s framed and looking for her new home.

This exhibition is open from Sat 13 May until Sat 17 June at
The Gallery, Wanneroo Library & Cultural Centre,
3 Rocca Way, Wanneroo.

Enjoy a cultural journey & be visually inspired as you view the latest works from Western Australian artists.  Entry is free & artwork is available for purchase.

I’m afraid this opening is invitation only & is on the same night as the Moores exhibition.  I’m hoping to race from Wanneroo to Fremantle in time to get to both openings, anyone with a helicopter your assistance would be most appreciated!).

April’s portrait is called ‘Letting Go’

One of the bodies of work I’ve embarked on this year is to paint a self portrait each month.  I’m looking at how my inner life emerges as I join with colour and create my own image.
This month has certainly felt a lot different as I’ve been attempting to release some of those irky feelings that live within – and ‘Letting Go’ has emerged…

It represents a totally new body of work with many pieces that are smaller and cheaper.
