Wetlands: from waves to waterfalls
My current project is an exploration of some of the Northern Territory's magnificant wetlands: artistically and on the ground. It will culminate in another collaborative exhibition, raising awareness about their flora and fauna, beauty, importance and threats. 

Artist at Fogg Dam 
I delivered an artist's talk on "The Artist as an Observer of Nature" at Pandanus lookout - after doing some pastel demonstrations en plein air with some delightful young people.  Last year, I curated this multimedia collaboration with painters Christian Clare Robertson, Jane Moore, Robert Walter, Graham Dugmal Kenyon, Textile Artists Veronica Priestley and Lil Smith and cermacists Lee Berryman and Fiona Scott at Tactile Arts Gallery, Darwin, in October 2016,

Kingfisher med format

Iridescence - Kingfisher and two Damselflies

My Prize winning entry for the Katherine Prize 2015. This painting needs to be seen in person - the camera simply can't capture the shimmering surface of the paint. It is in Acrylic and collage on canvas and 100 x 77cm in size.
It is inspired by the seasonal Creek that passes through our property at Humpty Doo, with its tiny water lilies and other strange water plants. The Azure Kingfisher is one of a succession of Kingfisher species that visit the Creek at different stages of the wet season.

Pygmy Geese

Gallery 4 - Wings - Solo exhibition - May 2015

Inspired by Goose Lagoon at the Territory Wildlife Park these two tiny geese (in fact, they are small perching ducks) paddle nonchalantly through shimmering floodwater, amidst floating and submerged leaves. I would like to thank the Director and staff of the Park who made this painting possible, particularly Damien Stanioch.

I contributed to the Solomon Islands Government collection at Dodo Creek when I lived in Honiara, I understand that unfortunately the collection was destroyed in the troubles. Some, including a few specimens of 'my butterfly' had been sent to the British Museum.

Gallery 8 - Tropical Voices Exhibition

If you have lived in Darwin, or anywhere in the Tropics, there must be images, sounds and sensations which will always be evocative and you will remember them wherever you go. I have tried to capture some of these.
