Lethbridge Gallery Small Scale Art Award 2021 finalist exhibition - Paddington, Brisbane
The Other Art Fair - Barangaroo, Sydney
I am delighted to a finalist in the Lethbridge Gallery 20000 Small Scale Art Award 2021. This is a group exhibition at Lethbridge Gallery 18 to 26 June 2021. I will be there on opening night 19 June from 5pm to 7pm. Come along and say hi.
I have two pieces accepted as finalists - 'the bots' and 'six days in a leaky boat'. Both pieces are very close to my heart reflecting on my brain when too many pages are left open and on respect, acknowledgement and experiences of displaced peoples and communities.

The Home Show Exhibition -Mist Gallery
I have several pieces in this exhibition that runs through February. This is a lovely new Gallery and well worth a look.
The Home Show (5 to 28 February 2021) is a collection of artworks that draws on the place we call home. From the functional pieces such as jugs and cups, to the bouquet of flowers that is bought to brighten the home. Artworks that reflect the daily scenes in the home, like the dinner table, the collection of fruit and vegetables just bought from the local farmers market, the cracked pot with weeds growing in the garden or the perfectly arranged console with the antique vase from Nan. A lamp glowing in the corner, a comfy chair or the combination of fantasy and reality that makes our hearts sing.
Whatever the scene is, The Home Show is who we are and the things that make our home a home. Artists were invited to create their own take on this theme and the result has been fascinating and eclectic.
