OPEN STUDIO This Weekend!

Watch and Act 2020, 180 x 300 cm

Dear Art Lovers,

Another busy month has just flown by and regular pings on the mobile to signal warnings of fire outbreaks eased off early here in West Gippsland.  Fire icons were quickly replaced by those that represented storms, trees down and floods.

Rural communities and Indigenous flora and fauna are being pushed to the brink by changes in pattern and their ongoing ripple effects.  It’s heartwarming to know that so many people and organisations have stepped up to assist, initiating helpful projects which provide us with various ways to get involved.

Here I would like to thank the Gippsland Art Gallery in Sale for providing an exciting ‘way’ for both artists and collectors – please read on!

Change in Pattern 2017 to Auction
at The Wedge Performing Arts Centre in Sale!

“Much like the landscape itself, this painting appears in constant visual flux. A simple solid shape ‘the bush rat’ can be found within the interwoven, poetic configuration of line – a subtle reminder that we are not alone in this wondrous experience of life”.

I would also like to thank and congratulate a very dear friend of mine – Dr Aunty Eileen Harrison who recently invited me to speak on her behalf at Bunjilaka, Melbourne Museum.

I was greatly honoured.  It was a very special occasion, the opening of ‘Two Strong Sisters Connected’.  An exhibition of artworks by Dr Aunty Eileen Harrison and Aunty Rochelle Patten.

The exhibition provides a soulful experience and takes the beholder on an intimate journey through individual stories.  The true spirit of sisterhood shines through and celebrates Victorian Koorie Culture.

Dr Aunty Eileen Harrison and Aunty Rochell Patten – thank you for sharing and for inspiring us all to embrace a love of country, a love of culture, and a love of family through art xxx

It has been tremendous to have artwork The Bonfire featured at the Frankston Arts Centre for nearly four years. This piece was dismantled on Monday the 24th of February and was replaced with new work by artist Peter Biram.  Congratulations to Peter, and thank you to the Frankston City Council and Andrew Moon, Manager of Arts & Culture. It has been such a pleasure to work with you all!

And here in Crossover we’ve been busy preparing for
