'Moral Ambiguity' sculpture installation 'Eden Unearthed' 2017
A snapshot of my latest rabbit sculpture installed at Eden Gardens Macquarie Park NSW. The launch evening is 31st August 2017 at 4.30 pm. Get tickets here. General opening 1st September 2017 for 6 months.
The humble rabbit is my vehicle to shine a light on man’s moral ambiguity. Why are some animal’s food and some not? Why is it ok to eat ‘X’ animal in this country but not in another? Why are some pets, pests and food at the same time? Who decides and why is it accepted?

This little beauty has gone to its new home in Canberra. Am sure it will look fabulous wherever it is hung. Thanks Bluethumb :)
A still life study in soft greys. This work is a look at how everyday objects can be beautiful in their own right. With textural brush strokes, paint scratched back and movement in each stroke this artwork has an intensity that belies its static subject matter. Oil on stretched canvas.
Well our time at Nepean is over, but happily many of us sold a work or two! (June 2017).
My "Dragonfly Flirtation" artwork found a new home and I hope they get many years of pleasure from it.
Oh dear, I have had quite some hiatus! There have been one or two exhibitions since my last post, but I have sold a house, bought a house, moved, built an art studio out the back in our fabulously treed backyard and am now unpacking the last of the goodies we had in storage for over the last year or so (don't ask!). So here is a little exhibition that I am part of out at Nepean Hospital. It is on currently (today it's 25/05/2017) and runs for a while. So if you're out that way, do pop in and have a look at our eclectic exhibition.

Look out for my toilet roll "Surfin Spidy" painting, dry point etching of Milson's Point 1890's, limestone sculpture "Chamaera" and "Mini Mutant Ninja Bunny" a solid wire sculpture.

Not your average exhibition!
This is a POLITICALLY CORRECT FREE zone!
It went very well and made lots of people laugh and it was suggested many times that it should be a travelling exhibition! Food for thought.
Big thanks to Merryn Spencer Creative Broker Pop Up Parramatta for opening the event for us.
