I always like to exhibit in group exhibitions that are held around Brisbane and interstate! It allows people to see the brushwork up close and smell the linseed. You can't do that from images on a website!

August 2021: ART ST @ the ArtSpace, RBWH

August 2021: Ekka Art Show 
Well, I was looking forward to exhibiting at the Ekka Fine Art Show for a little over a week, but unfortunately COVID19 cancelled the Ekka and the Art Show again! We thought all was lost, however, the wonderful organisers decided to hold the art show for a few hours on Sat 14 August. It was nice to see them displayed even though it was only for a few hours! I'm optimistically looking forward to next year!
