I was recently interviewed for an article in the Canberra Times about my work in the Chandelier Show at the Canberra Glassworks. The Sydney Morning Herald also published the article. Links to both these articles can be found below
It has been a while since my last post but lots has happened. I have been part of exhibitions at the National Botanic Gardens of Australia, Beaver Galleries, the ANU School of Art Gallery and Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre. I have also helped coordinate the Conference Exhibition for the biannual Ausglass Conference and have developed a new production range which is currently for sale at the Canberra Glassworks.
I'm proud to be exhibiting as part of Design Canberra again this year, this time in the Living Rooms program.
"Architecture + design + craft = an open home with a difference. Explore the living rooms of acclaimed Canberra houses in the inner north and inner south, and discover pop-up exhibitions with works on sale by local artists, makers and craft practitioners. Enjoy a progressive exhibition as you take in the beauty of design in our own backyard."
I will be exhibiting some of my Light Waves works at 84 Caley Crescent, Narrabundah on Sunday 6th and 20th Nov from 1-2:30pm. The works will be for sale and the home will be open for inspection of the architecture by Architecture Bespoke.

Several years ago I was fortunate enough to be selected as Artist-in-Residence by Craft ACT as part of their yearly partnership with Namadgi National Park. This year marks the 10th anniversary of this partnership and as such they have invited all past participants back to a take part in a collaborative residency program.
On September 17th Craft ACT and Namadgi National Park are celebrating the last 10 years with a visit to Namadgi that includes talks from most of the artists and the opportunity to learn about Aboriginal tools, artifacts and bush craft. The artists involved are; Barb McConchie, Bernard Morris, Marian Hosking, Kirstie Rea, Paull Klee, Jo Searle, Sally Blake, Annee Miron, Ruth Hingston, Marily Cintra and Zsuzsi Soboslay. It will be a wonderful and highly interesting day and I encourage all to attend.
I shall be undertaking my part of the collaborative residency from 24th to 26th September and am very much looking forward to working with the other like-minded artists to create works of art based on such a beautiful place.
I am in Craft ACT's annual membership showcase 'Citizens of Craft'.
The exhibition runs from 9th September to 22nd October with the opening night at 6pm on 9th September.
