Each year, the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (APPA - the only professional industry body in Australia) holds awards both at the State and the National Level. I excitedly shared in my last post that I was named “NSW 2019 Illustrative Photographer of the Year”,. This past weekend, the National Awards were held. I was really pleased to win two golds and two silver distinctions. My highest scoring print (93) was for my “Entwined” artwork. This is the first in a series entitled “Bush Tapestries”, inspired by the beautiful Australian Native Flora and Fauna. It measures 40 inches by 40 inches. The quality of the work submitted at the National Level in the Illustrative Category is truly inspiring. Really wonderful to be in the company of such creative individuals.

I am super excited to be exhibiting at Sydney’s “The Other Art Fair” next week in the Australian Technology Park at Eveleigh. I will be sharing a variety of pieces, but have been working very hard on my “Grow Where You Are Planted” series. I have created these artworks by compositing images taken in the past two years in and around Sydney. All of the subjects are Native Australian Flora and Fauna. Some of the artworks have 200 layered images in them…Here I invite you to take a close look. These are available as Limited Edition Prints. The large size is 40”x40”, edition of 10. The smaller size is an Edition of 20 at 30”x30”. Do you have a favourite?
