Tweed Naturally Art Awards


Tweed Naturally Art Awards opens this week at the Tweed River Art Gallery and one of my works 'Fragility' (pictured above) was selected for this show. This work is coil stitched from fishing line and was made from debris I found along the beach at Fingal and the banks of the Tweed and Currumbin rivers.

“The Tweed Naturally Art Awards evolved from a need to promote awareness and understanding of biodiversity and conservation issues within our region. Through the creative process, the objective is to educate and inspire the artists and viewers alike, to further appreciate, respect and examine our ever changing natural environment.”

Art Quirks

This Sunday Art Quirks opens at the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery. 15 of my pieces from the Transmigration series were selected for this exhibition which represents contemporary emerging artists who use unconventional media to make their art.

"The curatorial premise for the exhibition and subsequent touring project is to engage the audience in issues associated with defining art and investigating what original contemporary art is all about. If art is fundamentally everywhere then so is the stuff to make art from."

Borneo Baskets

Recently I spent a few days in Kuching, Malaysian Borneo en route to East Timor. Beautiful basket work but dangerous place as has the highest casualty rate in the world per capita for pedestrian head injuries from descending boom gates.
