Here it is! My contribution to Belonging to the Night, curated by Jessica Bridgfoot for Stockroom gallery, Kyneton. Opens Saturday December 10th, from 4:30pm. Above is a Gif of the two states of the work, by day and by night.

I am so pleased that this is the work I finish the year with, I'm taking a little break from the studio over summer to regroup and recoup from such a busy and productive year and I'll get back to it in January. But until then, stay tuned for upcoming details on Belonging to the Night.

Now showing with Edmund + Co

Thrilled to announce you can now see my work, alongside some great artists, at an exciting new space opening in Hawthorn this week. 
The space is run by the lovely Tim Bruce, who was kind enough to give me one of my very first solo shows when I was fresh out of art school many moons ago.


Get on over to Glenferrie Road and check it out this Saturday!

Recent works acquired for the Epworth Hospital collection

Tracy Spinks, the wonderful collections manager of the Epworth Hospital's art collection has just acquired the final 3 works in this series, which looks at the 6 main elements found in the human body.
Very pleased that these works will all hang together on the walls of the Epworth in Geelong, and will hopefully bring a little happiness to the doctors, nurses, support staff and of course the patients as they pass them.
