Exhibiting artist: Blue Mountains Portraits

While you’re in the mountains, after Springwood, keep going up to Katoomba. Check out the Blue Mountains Portraits exhibition at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre. I’ve got a piece there too, and it’s not your everyday sort of portrait. Always a great exhibition. Come along.

Misty Blue Mountains.

It’s comforting to contemplate mist as we experience so much smoke and fire. It’s a tragic season for us in the Mountains, for Australia. 

Forecast: Mist was at the Big Little Gallery on Ha’penny Lane, Katoomba. See the works exhibited here


Southern Highlands: The Art of Collecting (9 – 24 November 2019)

Aftermath. A terrible summer.

We need trees. They’re gone.

More than ever Australia needs habitat. I am devastated by the fires that have raged within a few kilometres of my home, my studio, and inundated so many communities.

I am in despair over the loss of our natural heritage. It’s calculated at 80% in the Blue Mountains. 80% of world heritage bushland.

Here’s my contribution for habitat. More trees put in the ground this week, and more to come, that’s my promise. Managed and cared for by Trees For Life.
