'Tardiba' picked up two prizes at the Derwent Valley Autumn Festival Art Prize 2016.
1st Place, and 1st Peoples Choice.
I'm pictured here with event organizers Ron and Lois, thanks to these guys and more for putting it all together and The Derwent Valley Council.
There was loads of variety and talent and I was surprised to pick up one award, so two flawed me.

My drawing, 'Tardiba' pictured here in the book Tarkine Trails.
This publication put together by Phil Pullinger, features public walking areas mapped out in the Tarkine, Tasmania.
The Tarkine is a large area of Tasmania that is a mostly untouched, beautifully wild place.
I'm very happy that this major piece is featured in something that is a part of my home.

I was very proud to be involved with Hobart City Missions OPSM Art Exhibition,
held from October 9, 2015
The fundraiser hosted a heap of Artists and Photographers displaying their work at the
Salamanca Long gallery, Hobart.
I was showing a few pieces, and showed up for a day to draw, talk about the work and answer questions,
I had a great time, Hobart City Mission hosts this event each year.

I've recently finished this major piece, measuring 120cm x 90cm.
Most of this one is pastel, with a little acrylic paint.
The ground cover was the most difficult, like assembling an engine.
Check the Gallery to see how the final picture looks.
