Lovely to learn in this article in the Weekend West New Homes Magazine that my painting has such a prominent place in this new home!

For the last three months, I have been working on paintings and ceramic pieces for the Art Upmarket, to be held on the 6th of April at Winthrop Hall at the University of Western Australian in Perth.
