In early 2012 I had specific works exhibited in Safe Keeping which was curated by the National Trust. This was part of heritage week in WA and honoured the inventiveness of people in the West who created, out of necessity, the Coolgardie Safe which was an innovative way of keeping food cold. Approximately 30 artists each sourced an old Coolgardie Safe and created artworks around that safe. These works along with the safes were exhibited at the restored Town Hall in Perth, WA.
Stiil Life/Our Life is a 5 year long exhibition organised from Kalbarri, WA, to commemorate 400 years since the first known visit to Australian shores by Europeans. In 2012 my work in the first exhibition for this project was a hand coloured etching/aquatint entitled ‘Collection’. Each year the project conducts different exhibitions which invite the community to participate.
In 2013 I was commissioned as one of the ten printmakers around Australia to create a fine art print edition for the Print Council of Australia. This is a great opportunity for artists to have their works seen and purchased by collectors around Australia. This has expanded the number of my works in public collections around Australia.
In January 2014 I completed a Public Art Commission for the new Wandina Primary School in Geraldton WA.
In April 2014 I will be travelling to Finland where I will be an Artist in Residence for a month, investigating the northern European flora as they emerge in spring from the icy grounds. While there I have been invited to hold a solo exhibition of my work and run a lino printing workshop.
