Greetings all.

I hope you all had a great Christmas and Happy New Year, and that 2017 will be a great year for you.

I can't believe that more than six months has gone by since my last newsletter in July 2016.   Time flies when you are having fun - or learning something new.

I have a new exhibition.  

THE LAST FLEET AND NEW BEGINNINGS is currently showing at the Currumbin RSL, 165 Duringan Street, Currumbin. Qld.  4223  until 29th March 2017.

The Currumbin RSL is a wonderful club, with fantastic food, great views of the river, friendly staff, and they frequently have wonderful free live music events - as well as lots of other events.

I hope that some of you can make the time to come and see my artwork in The Waterside Gallery there some time before the end of March.
I have a new obsession - Resin.  Over the last four months, I have learnt to paint beautiful wall art paintings with Epoxy Resin, and am now offering to teach Encaustic, Resin, Oil Painting and Charcoal Drawing in my studio in Tallai.

Resin Art has recently become very popular because of the extraordinary vivid colours and fine detail obtained when colour pigments are added. The Resin I use is epoxy resin which is a hard, UV resistant, clear laminating resin.

I have a new gallery in my website that will take you straight to my Resin Gallery.

Below are a few examples of my new resin work.  All are available for purchase at a very reasonable price - lay-buys accept.  

Commissions are accepted also.  With commissions, you can give me your choice of colours and the size you would like, and I can create a custom painting.Secret of the Sea - 60cm Porthole

Voices of Tides - 60cm Porthole

Memories and Dreams of Time 45cm x 60cm

Harmony - 60cm Porthole

Exploding Supernova - 25.5 x 25.5cm

I have expanded my Workshop Repertoire.   I am now offering to teach Resin, Encaustic, Oil or Acrylic Painting, or Charcoal Drawing in my air conditioned studios in Tallai.

For the Resin Workshops - I can take a maximum 2 students at a time.  I supply all materials for $180 per student per 3 hour session, and you can create your own 60cm circular painting to take home and hang on your wall.    Students can collect their cured resin piece the next day, or arrange for me to post to you.  Resin need to remain untouched for 24 hours to cure enough to travel.  In 72 hours, it is completely cured.

In my Encaustic Workshops, I can take a maximum of 4 students. The cost is $140 per day per student from 9am - 3pm.  I supply all materials and equipment.  All you need to bring is an apron and some much.  Everything else is provided.
I run classes even with one student - but four is good as each student can interact with each other.

For best results, I recommend two or three days, but one day will teach you the very basics and enable you to go away and set up your own studio to continue using this fascinating medium at home. 
In late 2016, I was approached by a Gift Shop to have some of my artwork displayed on consignment.
Many of my pieces are now for sale in the Aussie Gift Shack, Level 3, Robina Town Centre, Robina. Qld. 4230.


I also have a large body of work exhibiting with my fellow artists in The Gallery in the Corridor, Beenleigh Historical Village and Museum, 205 Main Street, Beenleigh 4207.

My wall offers both Encaustic and Resin Art, and John has a half wall space there also now for his Telescopic Astronomy Photographs. is the Facebook Link to The Gallery in the Corridor, and is the link to the Beenleigh Historical Village and Museum.

The Village, Gallery and the Village Cafe are now open seven days a week from 9am until 3pm.

The Village is a wonderful place to take a step back in time and see how our early settlers lived and worked.  

This current display will be here until the end of February, when it will be refreshed with new work.

All work is for sale - Lay-buys and Commissions accepted.

More of my work.  The shipwreck paintings displayed here are Limited Edition Prints on Face Mounted Acrylic.  The originals are currently on display at the Currumbin RSL.   The drawing is charcoal.

Some of John Reichelt's Astronomy Star Photos above, and below is a collaborative series of images combining John's Star Photos with my charcoal drawings to tell the Life Cycle of Stars.  This is a new series that we are working on.

I have a second solo exhibition scheduled for the month of May 2017 with One Arts Gold Coast. is a link to the Venue.  The address is Cnr Verona and Via Roma Street, Isle of Capri. Qld.  4217.

I haven't decided upon the title for this exhibition yet, but will let you know shortly.
