You'll find this painting at the entry to my garden it is a 1.8m long acrylic on gallery linen so you won't be able to miss it . The dry glow of our rural farming landscape with its rolling hills and character cottages plus a sheep or two.
Emus running off my page!
"GLULP, Where's your mother?"
For those of you that have not grown up in Australia you may not know that the Male Emu looks after the nest and the new born chicks while the Female Emus have no job in rearing the brood after laying the eggs.

Back from the country
This pastel triptych "Heads Down" was the result of a frenetic day spent in the Qualering farm shearing shed. The pace was fierce and the skill was evident.
Thought I’d share two quotes from “The Oldest Roustabout in WA”
“I’ve never seen them shear so fast as when the camera was on”
“They’re on their best behaviour as I haven’t heard any swearing since you walked in!”
4th Annual Art Studio and Garden Open Days
This year has been a busy one and I'm "Back from the country". My year started with an exhibition at my friends Corrigin farm shearing shed which then led to workshops and further exhibitions in Wickepin and Kulin. My travels also included a fantastic trip to the Snowy Mountains in NSW where we stayed in stone and timber huts in the "High Country" and enjoyed the snowy landscape. I hope you can join me over the next 4 weekends in November and enjoy my 2017 collection of paintings sculptures and photography.
Art Inspirations in Kulin Town Hall
A full weekend traveling down the Tin Horse Highway to Kulin for a fantastic weekend of Art, Sculptures and Horse racing.The Art Inspirations exhibition ran for three days where everyone was invited to join in an activity "Do you see what I see" . It made quite a buzz as people tried to find all the hidden animals in my paintings They could also create their own interpretations of some random ink blobs and compare their visions with others that had taken part in the activity.
Saturday afternoon/evening was spent at the Kulin Races where horses with names like "Frilly Knickers" and "Raunchy Lady" took out first places. There were Barrel racing, sheep racing and dog races before settling in for the fireworks and evening entertainment with Eskimo Joe.
