I'm thrilled to have had my proposal submission accepted by senior curator of Manly Art Gallery and Museum Katherine Roberts for an exhibition themed 'Land'. The curated exhibition will feature 43 artists from Sydney using a broad range of media in responses to the theme 'Land' for inspiration. I'm looking forward to producing the work and being showcased later in the year. More details to come!

'3 Painters' Group Show
It's wonderful to be showing alongside two of my colleagues and fellow painters for an upcoming group show at the McGlade Gallery ACU Strathfield, Sydney. The last time our works were seen together was when we were all finalists in The Dobell Prize for Australian Drawing at the Art Gallery of NSW, so this is very special. The show will be officially launched on the 26th of April by the lovely Nick Vickers, independent curator, please join us for drinks.
I'm very honoured to have recently been invited to be apart of the judging panel for Hazelhurst Art On Paper Awards. The list of finalists look amazing and it's going to be a cracker of a show. Good luck to all the selected finalists! The opening for the Exhibition will be 19th May 2017 at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery and Arts Centre. The winning works will be judged by acclaimed Australian artist Lindy Lee.
I'm extremely honoured to be included in the latest edition of Runway - Australian Experimental Art Issue #32 [Re/Production] A big thank you to the very talented Susannah Smith who featured me in 'The Double Producers: Makers and Motherhood'. Her fantastic article features my practice alongside two other amazing artist painters Zoe Young and Sara Roberts. Susannah Smith explores the complexities of the ‘Double Producers:’ what does it mean to be an artist and a mother in contemporary Australia?
