I've been a big fan of Thankyou for a long time, so when their team got in touch to see if I wanted to be part of their first ever collaboration, of course I jumped at the chance!
Together we have created a limited-time 'Earl Grey & Clary Sage' hand wash which draws from a piece of mine titled 'Momentum'. This piece was painted specifically for this collab and is inspired by the WASH programs Thankyou fund in Bangladesh.
These impactful programs are full of momentous opportunities to empower women and provide hope for a future without poverty. For those of you who know me, know that this is something I feel very strongly about.
I couldn't be more proud of what this product and collaboration stands for!!
More to come on this collab soon, but in the meantime, grab yourself a bottle of this life changing hand wash online at Thankyou or on the shelves at Coles!
One of the longest debates in the art world surrounds itself around whether or not "Painting is Dead" - infamously spoken by Paul Delaroche in 1839 upon seeing the Daguerreotype for the first time. After centuries of debate, Back and Dead doesn't seek to claim painting as dead or alive. Back and Dead instead provides insight into contemporary painting in Melbourne in 2017 and asks audiences to make up their own mind about the state of the medium.
Featuring work from Ajay Jennings, Matthew Dettmer, Stephen Baker, Tai Smith and myself, 'Back and Dead' opens on August 17th from 6-8pm (and runs until September 12th 2017).
Check out one of the pieces I have in the show below. This work is up for sale (with pre-sales now open). For more info, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and lock August 17th into your diary for opening night!

I recently sat down with the team from Sight Unseen and had a chat about my current inspirations, intuitive process and David Hockney. Head over to their site, have a browse and check out their interview with me!
I'm proud to share with you that I have a couple of pieces in the first ever Modern Times group show, 'Home'.
Filled with some amazing work from over 20 contemporary Australian artists, 'Home' opens on October 27th (and runs until November 10th) and explores the notion of home, and what it means to each artist.
Check out the two pieces I have in the show below. Both pieces are up for sales (with pre-sales now open). For more info, email email@example.com, and lock in October 27th into your diary for opening night!

Twelve artists, including myself, were each given a HFG clock to customise, and now all of them are being auctioned off. To check out (and bid on) all of the 'Hunting Collective' clocks, head over to the HFG website.
The rad team from Hunting For George also popped over for studio visit a few weeks ago, so head over to their blog to check out some pics, an interview and even a video of me in the studio!
Thanks to the HFG team for including me in this fun project,
'Floating Worlds', a joint show between myself and local artist Stephen Baker, offers a collection of recent painting by both Stephen and I, drawing on botanical themes, and the interplay between the natural and manmade world.
Im busy working on pieces for an upcoming exhibition that will open April 30th here in Melbourne. Until I can share more with you on this, here's a little sneak peek of a few pieces to keep you in the loop!
