A picture book I've illustrated; Elliott's Rainbow Heart will be released December 2017.
It's 32 pages of colourful rain forest as Elliott pushes himself to discover something he's wanted that's dear to his heart.
It was a real pleasure drawing this sparing no expense on the detail.

For Mary
Battery Point, Hobart Tasmania.
Sandy Bay Road and St Georges Terrace
Traffic Light Box Painting
From 1895 to 1921 Mary Roberts ran a private zoo at Battery Point, Hobart, that included caring for Tasmanian Devils and Thylacines. Mary was a member of many social groups and a pioneer of her time. She presented her studies of the Tasmanian Devil to a scientific paper "Proceedings of the Zoological Society of London' in 1915. These achievements were difficult for women at the time. This painting is for Mary.
Thank you to the people of Battery Point for the support while working on-site.

When I get the chance I leave little drawings or in this case - paintings on the street with a note for anyone to keep.

April 2016
'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 a great variety of talent and I was surprised to pick up one award, so two knocked me over.
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, a 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 9/10/2015
The fundraiser hosted a heap of Artists and Photographers displaying their work at the
Salamanca Long gallery, Hobart.

A big thank you to Maurice for getting me involved.
