Thank you ever so much to all that came to our exhibition at Off the Kerb, we had the best time discussing art and ideas with you on opening night. Big thanks to those who visited the gallery throughout the duration of the show. We hope that this exhibition has inspired you to think about responses to climate change and how we can act collectively moving forward.
My friend and fellow artist/illustrator, Greg Harriden and I have an exhibition at Off the Kerb in Collingwood, Melbourne in February. We have been busily making works for the past few months that invite us all to reflect upon the impacts of human-induced climate change, our current responses to the issue and how me might act moving forward. We would love to see you at the opening night event.
A big heartfelt thank you to all who came to our River Studios Christmas Market. I would also like to thank my workshop participants, they made the day so much fun, and went home with some very beautiful hand-printed wrapping paper. Whoever receives a gift wrapped in those designs is a very lucky person.
I also have to give a big shout out to my Mum, who manned my market stall all day so that I could run the workshops, and another big thank you to my Dad who went and bought Katie and I lunch, while we were busily working away.
This December I am participating in the River Studios Christmas Market, where I will be selling cards and original artworks. Together with Katie Starkey, I am also running a hand printed lino-cut Christmas wrapping paper workshop. We can have a maximum of 10 people per workshop and will be running two workshops throughout the day. Please get in touch if you would like to register for the event.
River Studios Artists have come together for an exhibition at Dirty Dozen, the bustling space in the walkway underneath Flinders Street Station, Melbourne. Each of the artists exhibiting created a display in one of glass cabinets in the subway. This exhibition shows the diverse practices of all the artists working out of River Studios.
If you are heading into the city throughout July, make sure you go in by train and hop off at Flinders Street to see our exhibition.
PhD candidate Jennifer Macdonald, the Flycatcher magazine editor-in-chief, invited me to illustrate an article titled ‘Avoidance relationships and the story of the Yugul Manga ranger shed’ for the wet season edition of Flycatcher. After reading her article centred around the remote Indigenous town of Ngukurr, I decided to paint a watercolour illustration reflecting the landscape. My illustration and the Jennifer’s article is published in issue no.9 of Flycatcher. The magazine can be viewed via Flycatcher magazine’s website.
