I was amused by the fact that people wanted to open the door and also when the gallery received phone calls to say they made a mistake on their website because some of the paintings were still in their bubble wrap.

Deakin University acquisition

High Definition, pictured above, has been acquired by Deakin University from my current exhibition, True Fictions. It is from a series of paintings depicting the Australian landscape as seen on television - a reference to the indirect way we frequently experience the world around us. I am delighted that my painting will be part of such a great collection.
