Homestead Gallery 1 & 2 | 27 July – 21 August 2022

I love to travel and paint, but travel restrictions due to the pandemic, have kept me home in Canberra for two years. But what an opportunity! To paint around Canberra. So I have spent the past 18 months doing just that, en plein air, and in the studio.
This exhibition is based on my discovery of some of the beautiful natural places we are so lucky to have nearby. Rivers, lakes, suburbia, parks, have all become my subject matter in oils, and I have also added some mosaics to the mix.
