'Land' at Manly Art Gallery and Museum 3 Nov- 3 Dec 2017

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.
