The judging of "Art on Loftus" for 2014 went well. I really enjoyed seeing all the wonderful creativity they had on display. Opening night was fun and I think my choices were well received.


"Ned Turns a Corner" lurked at  "Sculptures in the Vineyard" (Wollombi) and has now just returned to suburban Sydney where he has the neighbourhood on alert.


My donated artwork "Sam's Early Morn" etching, aquatint print sold at the 2014 Refugee Ball. Great cause :)

"Reimagining the Familiar" was a joint exhibition of works by Lyndsey and the very talented Bethany Tucker.

Held at the Watch House 179 Darling Street Balmain in October 2014. Very enjoyable exhibition and space.


Another successful exhibition has been had at Westmead Hospital Temporary Exhibition Space (Sept - Oct 2014). Lots of sales and great comments from people enjoying the artworks on display.

Got a lovely surprise on Tuesday night when I won 2nd prize in the Miniature Sculpture section and HC in the Printmaking section at the 2014 Royal Easter Show. 

 Yours truly and Rona Sissons (both very irreverent artists) had our ......

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.
