‘Dawn awakening’ which I painted a few weeks ago is in the post on her way to the other side of the country. I’m sad to see her go but happy she will be loved in her new home!
This is my latest piece inspired by Annie Hamman from her lesson in Let’s face it. Annie is a wonderful teacher and artist. I love learning from her. She’s a real sweetheart too!
Not sure on a name for this yet…. maybe ‘Strength’ but still undecided.
I am so excited to announce that registration is finally open for ‘Let’s face’ it 2017!

I was so excited and honoured to be pre-selected for the Brisbane Art Prize 2016 from hundreds of entries from all over the world!
The theme for the competition was ‘The meaning of life’.
The opening night was at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, Brisbane. Here I am at the opening night with my friends and my entry titled ‘Let your light shine’. My idea for the theme came about as we are called by God to let our light shine to the world. My plan was for my subject to emanate light. I think I succeeded.
The opening night was a great success with huge crowd! Thank you to The Glance Photography who took some fantastic pics!

Happy to win a 2nd prize for ‘Courage’ in the art show in June.
The theme for the section was ‘Australian outback’.
I chose to paint this aboriginal boy backed by a classic outback sunset. He has a look of courage and determination on his adorable little face.
To get a better look at this painting go to my Portraits section in the menu bar above.
So excited to be chosen from hundreds of entries from all over the world!
The theme for the competition is ‘The meaning of life’. My painting shown here is titled ‘Let your light shine’.
I’m heading down to the awards night on Thursday with some of my friends and family. It’s going to be an awesome night with some fantastic entertainment and of course lots of wonderful art. #brisartprize2016
Mixed media on paper. Sold.
Isnt she lovely! Her name is Vanessa but her friends and family call her Nessy. She has an identical twin sister called Melissa whose nickname is Lissy.
I really enjoyed doing this painting. I’m happy that I managed to capture her beautiful serene expression. What a lovely nature she has. She spends a lot of time looking after I’ll treated and malnourished horses, nurturing them to radiant health.
