Self Portraits

From 7 July to 27 August, I'm having a self portrait exhibition at the Maroondah Art Gallery in Ringwood. There will be twenty eight works, paintings, pastel, pencil and charcoal drawings and a sculpture. The exhibition spans the years 1994-2011. As you can see from the invitation, many of the self portraits do not reveal my face. Dr Vivien Gaston will officially open the show on July 14th. I thought I might show you some more examples but of course you should come along and see them in the flesh during the running of the exhibition.

Zart Art

Recently I gave a talk about my work at Zart Art in Box Hill North, called Meet The Artist. It's mainly for art teachers and what an enjoyable night it was too. Zart Art certainly looks after their invited artists with great food, wine and company. A night to remember!
