I will have these works hanging as part of this group show
The Powerful Owls have been nesting again down at our local creek. This threatened species are suffering due to habitat destruction and the loss of old growth trees for nesting hollows. A shy and secretive bird, they are the largest of Australia’s owls and the babies are simply gorgeous. I have been documenting their progress and was so pleased to see not one but two babies this year. These looser and more intuitive works have come since my time with my fellow artists on our art camp at Villa Rustica. There is always a lovely osmosis of ideas and ways of seeing that happen when artists work alongside each other.
Opening Saturday 17th April in conjunction with the new HOTA Gallery grand opening at Southport, Gold Coast.
These are some of the works I am offering to this dynamic group show.
My artwork ‘Redemption Series Echidna’ was selected as a finalist in the 2020 John Villiers Outback Art Prize. The artwork will be exhibited in the finalist exhibition between the dates of 6th March to 8th May 2020 at the Outback Regional Gallery located within the Waltzing Matilda Centre, Winton.
The gallery received a high number of entries from across Australia with 33 artists selected as finalists. Visiting guest judges were Henri Van Noordenberg and Lucy Culliton.
Sadly due to current circumstances this exhibition is closed.
Shark as Object was also selected as a finalist for the Muswellbrook Art Prize 2020.
This year they received 553 entries. After much deliberation by the selection panel 62 works were selected as finalists of the Prize. For the full list of finalists please visit the Muswellbrook Art Prize website.
This exhibition is also closed for now.

Friday night 12th April – 25th May 2019
Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum, Cnr Goondoon and Bramston Str, Gladstone
Monday – Sat 10 am – 5 pm
The gallery has acquired the work ‘First Home Gladstone’ for their collection and it’s very fitting it remain with the gallery as it depicts the house my dad’s family settled in on arrival from the Netherlands in 1955. The house no longer exists but it remains a part of the history of Gladstone. My family gifted the gallery with a copy of my Grandfathers film which documented the whole journey from Rotterdam to Gladstone and from which many of the paintings in this exhibition were based on.
Thanks to all of the 200 people who attended opening night at Redland Art Gallery… it was very lovely to share that with you. The Shore Birds exhibition also looked wonderful and it is a lovely accompaniment as we discuss the vulnerability of our migrating shorebirds as well as our shared migration stories.
Thanks to Louise Martin-Chew for opening with Professor Richard Fuller, School of Biological Sciences, University of Queensland.
