I recently submitted a piece of art to the City of Belmont Art Awards 2021 and today I received a call that has me smiling all day. The City of Belmont are acquiring the piece “Filing in the Silences” for the City’s collection. To day I am excited is an understatement 🙂🙂
As you may have gathered we have been on a little road trip – with the goal of attending opening night of the Inland Award Awards exhibition, a great night it was.
Here are a few pictures of our trip.
A great night (and a fabulous caravan journey to Leonora W.A)
“The Sheds” Fremantle inspired abstract landscape.
By coincidence the festival was on whilst we were staying in Esperance. I caught a session with two fabulous writers, Sarah Drummond and Fleur McDonald. A great talk.
“New Beginnings” has been installed at the HEART in Margaret River. Thirty six eclectic colourful works of art await your view.
Wishing all the caregivers out there a beautiful day filled with joy.
My painting tribute to this auspicious day: “We are Stronger When We Stand Together”
The Paris Affair
Simon & Schuster
She thinks love can kill you. It turns out she might be right. The dark and sexy new thriller from the bestselling author of The Sunday Girl and The Strangers We Know.
Harper Brown is an expert at picking locks, breaking her way out of car boots, talking her way out of trouble and she could run a masterclass on escaping relationships – her record for losing a guy is three minutes flat. She’s addicted to true crime podcasts and is the genius behind a micro-column called ‘How to not get murdered’.
After having her heart broken helping her ex follow his dreams, Harper has moved to Paris to fulfill hers. She’s talked her way into a job as an arts journalist, a stepping stone to her dream role as an investigative journalist. All she has to do is whatever it takes to get there. But then one night she meets the artist Noah X, and everything she thinks she knows is turned upside down.
Soon Harper finds herself entangled in a web of lies, hot on the trail of a murderer and the scoop of a lifetime. This is the story that could make her career – if the killer doesn’t catch her first.

This week I delivered some art to Collie Art Gallery ( in the south west of Western Australia – about 2 hours from our home.)
I am so pleased with the outcome. Collie Art Gallery is a fabulous art space. If you are in Western Australia please pop in and check out the gallery – and my work
It has been a busy few months in the lead up to my “Restless 2020” exhibition in Fremantle, Western Australia.
Here is a quick look at my room- it looks fabulous! Thanks to all those who visited the gallery, your support is amazing.
