It was a total pleasure to be part of The Design Files first fundraiser exhibition which opened last Saturday (25th July). All the proceeds from sales of this show are in support of the very worthy case, the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, a much needed life line service for refugees and asylum seekers.

Kon from the ASRC gave an extremely moving speech (and made more than one person shed a few tears). And its amazing to think that nearly $50,000 has been raised for the ASRC from this exhibition alone. It was a pleasure to donate two pieces to this incredible show and a huge congratulations to Lucy and Lisa from The Design Files for organising it.

Since its just under a week till my solo show, ALL THINGS NOW, opens at Modern Times, I thought it might be a nice idea to share sneak peek of a few pieces with you! Here is just 3 of the 21 pieces in my show.

The top piece, titled 'Open', is HUGE (acrylic on canvas 1.22m x 1.52m, framed in Tasmanian Oak), so if you are looking for something big and painterly, then this piece might just be for you.

Pre-sales have just opened, so if you would like a catalogue, please email pip@moderntimes.com.au

Make sure you have popped next Thursday, July 23rd into your diary. I would love for you (and your friends) to join us from 6 till 8pm at Modern Times. Come along, check out some paintings and help me celebrate.
