Artist's Residency in Graniti, Sicily

I have just returned from an artists residency in Graniti, Sicily.

It was my first mural project (hopefully the first of many) and I thoroughly enjoyed the 'stretch' of a large painting project. As with any travelling residency, the experience and challenge will continue to feed and inform my work for years to come.

Thank you Graniti!

New Beginnings...

Dear friends and fellow creatives,

I thought I'd start a new section to the website that keeps you up to date with what's happening inside and outside the studio. I often do this on my Facebook page but I thought I'd extend it to the website in order to connect with the wider internet community. We really do live in an amazing time and space where the world feels smaller and more accessible by the minute.

One of the first things I thought I'd do is share some happy snaps of my exhibition 'Viscera' that ran from the 10th to 22nd of December last year at Graydon Gallery, New Farm. It was a gorgeous opening night and I was blown away with just how blessed I am to have such loyal group of supporters. On the long, sometimes treacherous road that is the artist's path it helps to be surrounded by the love. Thank you.
