Since The Ladies Network launched last year, the collective has been busy trying to get rid of exclusiveness in the art scene, whilst fostering an environment of creative collaboration and support. To add to this, they also just launched an online art buying platform that showcases the work of some very talented ladies indeed!
Check out their new art store, which is currently curated around the theme of Desert Dreams. You can find three of my pieces in the mix too! Head over and check it out.
I recently sat down and had a chat with the guys over at Broadsheet about time managment, and rituals that help me get stuff done! 10 other amazing Australian creatives share their secrets too, so head over and check it out!
Most of us are getting back to the reality of work, and some of you maybe stuggling with that all important thing called motivation .... so, to help combat this, I decided to share with you a couple of free desktop wallpapers to brighten your workspace. You can download these below, by clicking through on on the READ MORE button.
Happy New Year

The idea that my work would one day be in Frankie Magazine blows my mind!! Ive been reading Frankie since way back in the mid 2000s and have used my fair share of pull out posters to decorate my walls. Soooo ..... you can imagine how humbled I am to not only have a double page spread in a feature on abstract art in their latest issue, but ...... my work also features on their pull out poster too!
I cannot even tell you how chuffed I am. Grab a copy of issue 67
now and you can have a piece of my work on your wall!
Im feeling very humbled to be featured on the always inspiring The Design Files today! Their post is all about my solo show All Things Now, which is on right now at Modern Times and runs until August 6th. Get along and check it out!
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.
Im pretty stoked to have an interview featured up on Daily Imprint. If you want to know more about what inspires me, head over and have a read! I may or may not have mentioned Ryan gosling in the interview!
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.
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.
